Every year, on this long weekend we have the fab Manly Jazz Festival.

It’s actually Labour day on Monday but no one cares about that because having a long weekend is the important bit. Oh and we have to move the clocks forward on Sunday night.

It’s soooo entertaining. Even if you are not a jazz fan, you can find a seat in front of the many stages where performers are on all day and evening for 3 days – and watch the people. You’ll see it all!!  Believe me.

I left a sign on the Studio door – ‘Gone Sketching’ it says. A little bit true.

So M and I took 2 dogs – Amelie and Ruby ( we’re dogsitting the Westie ) and joined the throng.

We found seats at several venues and I sketched, the dogs watched other dogs, M tapped his toes and the rain didn’t come down.

Later wandered off to have coffee, and this dear little bloke was having a lovely zzzzzz. At least he was a non- moving subject. His little sister entertained us with her tales of her rabbit, and we enjoyed a nice big buttery slice of banana bread, and an excellent coffee. Aaaaaah. What a good day.
