Run spotting – 12 July: French Festival
One of the reasons I love running down by Circular Quay is that there is always something going on in the front court of Customs House.
Usually it is some sort of elaborate corporate promotion or a big screen showing the Wimbeldon matches, but for three days over the weekend, it was the Bleu Blanc Rouge French Festival, a lively set-up of wine tasting, traditional food stalls and of course, music.
With cooking shows being all the rage, it certainly seemed appropriate to have on-site lessons from local chefs. Judging by the audience members who were hanging on every word, they were certainly appreciative of the opportunity to learn about some French delicacies – desserts!
And naturally, there is always food – lots of food. From crepes to croissants the smells were divine. I’m actually glad I didn’t bring any money along or I would have probably stopped for a glass of wine and a slice of salami – as you do when you’re out exercising.
