What a fantastic day, books, antiques, boutiques, treasures, food, chatting, laughing and sharing.
there was a schedule; however it was only loosely adhered to.
our first stop was the Maclean Rotary Book Fair - SCORE= 1 BOX of books $5 for Lola and a bag of books for Felix.
Books @ Eclectika, Maclean
second stop was "on the bite"
a delightfully warm and inviting cafe on the main strip in Maclean
- SCORE = 1 x skinny latte for Lola and 1 x skinny flat white for Felix
Skinny Latte @ On the Bite, Maclean
we unswiftly followed out coffee with a visit to "OUR" favorite gem of Maclean "Eclectika"
when Lola became engaged in taking photo's of the unique and beautiful store and Felix engaged in a deep and revealing conversation with "Eclectika's" owner about food and restaurants of the area only to discover that said owner, once owned and ran the most successful restaurant in our region. the things you discover when on an adventure in your own back yard !
Felix @ Eclectika
stop number three, Bangalow and lunch at "ate" OMG the most delicious food.
- SCORE = Pumpkin and burnt spinach lasagna and Organic Lemonade for Lola
hmmm i can't recall a delicious looking pie with crispy brown pastry and an Organic Lemonade for Felix.

giggling, enjoying and embracing the culture of doing not very much.
