The French Festival

We drove over to Akaroa to the French festival this weekend. We arrived on Friday night to a lovely evening, had some horrendously expensive fish and chips and then a few gins. The French festivities were on Saturday, there was a parade, some dodgy period costume and a couple of entertaining cooking classes. The highlights though, were the lovely Citroen DS in the parade:

and the Three Boys beer garden:


Boo thoroughly enjoyed herself too, there was plenty for her to see and do, and it was a great opportunity to brush up on her French. Although she's not a Dogue de Bordeaux or a French Bulldog, there's something decidedly French about her... I can't quite put my finger on it..
