A dinner at A Wing and a Pear Cafe in Nowra with local society members, exhibitors and visitors to the Shoalhaven Family, Local & Cultural History Fair was a fabulous way to finish off the first day of the Fair. Gratified after a three course meal I made my way back to the Parkhaven Motor Lodge that I had chosen on the strength of TripAdvisor reviews. It was a great little motel with newly refurbished rooms, a comfy bed and large bath towels (better than those in some 5 star hotels I have stayed in).
Refreshed and satisfied I was ready for my second day at the Fair. The photos that follow show some of the people and things I found at the fair.
