Yesterday was such fun!
We started off in a lazy unhurried way and went to the Mt to the 20th Rotary Used Book Sale held in a vast cool store..... missed the huge rush and queueing by getting there about 2.5 hours after opening. It has turned into a really big event,( photo shows about half the area ) with books of all sorts; magazines; CDs; sheet music and cassettes. We both did very well finding an array of reading and 5 CDs.( photo of mine here and DH did even better.)
Then we went and had lunch at the Classic Flyers ( where DH is a member ) then back across the bridge into Tauranga where finding a park was well nigh impossible because of the Jazz Feastival being held there.( many streets were blocked off ) With just a little patience we got a park and were just in time after walking a way to get into the movie I wanted to see.
Miss Potter. It was quite delightful with fabulous scenery in the Lakes District in UK. It was just a lovely natural story with Renee Zellweger being quite believable. I think Beatrix Potter would have approved. www.misspottermovie.co.uk Apparently her"The Tale of Peter Rabbit," is still the best selling children's book of all time!
Of course I particularly liked the way Beatrix moved against the norms of her time to be a person in her own right!
