And I still get excited like a little girl at the thought!
Here are a few of my favorite things ...
Bertie Beetle showbags would still have to be my favorites. They cost $3 (which is still the cheapest bag at the show) and are filled with delicious nougat bits covered in chocolate and shaped like a beetle. Doesn't get better than that!
Always a passion and I could easily spend days just sitting on the side of the main arena and watch every horse event there is. The smell of horses and hay and manure ... bliss
In Perth, the Royal Show is always at the end of September, beginning of October. Winter is over and Spring has Sprung. It's normally sunny and hot and people generally get their first dose of sunburn for the year while walking about. Bring on the vitamin D!
Even at my age, I still love the thrill of scaring myself on a fast and furious sideshow alley ride. At night is even better
Can, and do, spend hours in the Pigeon and Poultry Pavilion. Oohing and Aahhhing over all the beautiful breeds of chooks and ducks and geese.
Love to watch these clever dogs do the sheep dog trials, but most of all the agility. They have HUGE personalities! Our own dog, Tommy, is a handsome and clever border collie and I wish I had the time to train him like these dogs.
If we stay all day, we go and find a nice patch of grass, get some dinner and watch the free fireworks.
Are you going this year? I am :-)
