Girls weekend

Last weekend I spent a lovely time away at Napier with my sisters and niece. It was the famed Art deco weekend and what a buzz almost everyone including us had done their best to dress as per the 1920s or 1930s. Some of the costumes were amazing both male and female, add in jazz and swing music and dancing, vintage cars , the navy in town and the army plus events happening all day and well into the evening and you get some idea of the fun to be had in Napier once a year. The festival is also a tribute to the town and the terrible earthquake which almost wiped out the city  and levelled many of it s buildings in 1931.

There are many beautiful art deco  buildings in the city because that’s when they were all built in the two years after the earthquake. One sister lives near Napier so we all stayed with her. It was so nice to spend family time together we do not always get the chance and being able to share the experiences and get dressed up as well ..what more could a girls weekend need. here’s a link to photos in the newspaper. Do you like to get away with your sisters or family or friends. Where do you head to? My motto for this year  was to try new things and seize every day and this weekend was great. We even went to a special showing of a black and white Movie “Stage Door” Starring a very young Katherine Hepburn, Lucille Ball and Ginger Rogers.
