It was lovely to have Steph with us for 48 hours- and when we collected her from Christchurch Station on Sunday afternoon, we took the opportunity to walk down to the High Street and look at the Food Festival. It was a gloriously sunny day, and the smells of freshly cooked street foods, and the colours of the goods on display were fabulous.
And there were cocktails sticks and little plastic cups everywhere, with loads of free samples of food and drink.
We walked back in order to get home and change before church - the busker was still happily playing in the subway and the daisies and tulips were looking pretty as ever.
But after the Giggly Pig, Tasty Pig and Crispy Duck Stalls, we were a little concerned about the "Four Legged Fancies Dog Bakery"
Well done to Bournemouth Water for giving away lovely glasses of chilled water - your staff were so cheerful, and these free drinks were so refreshing.
Events like this are good for the community and fun for families - but the sunshine really made it even better.
