Three weeks ago I headed off to The Alexandra Show. It was an absolutely gorgeous day.
The Royal Melbourne Show just ain't what it was so I stopped going. But something in me missed the annual ritual, so I resolved to seek out and attend country shows instead.
I've got family in Alex, and grew up holidaying in Eildon, so bumping into an uncle is likely. Apparently I just missed him as he moved between the shearing demo and the wool shed.
Here's the pics - from kids art, to alpaca cheeks, fluffiest chook, best silverbeet, roses, scones and vintage cars. And jumping castles. Of course.
The show is managed by the Alexandra Pastoral & Agricultural Association Inc
