Mary Martin's

I had a small but enthusiastic crowd this morning at Mary Martin's bookshop in Norwood for my book reading. This was my little helper, feeding Old Sailor a jelly, then a shark.

A Sailor went to foot, foot, foot...

There were two more children but they were more shy initially. However once the camera went away they were feeding sea creatures to my sailor quite happily.

Before the reading, I went for a walk. It's clear spring is on the way with blossom and wattle emerging.

I was fascinated by these two an old shop with a very fancy curved, corrugated tin under-verandah.

The other was sited right on a roundabout and from the balcony above you would be IN the traffic!

Love the activity- go Janeenn and Elizabeth! A lovely book store indeed and one where Old Sailor would be well and truly at home.

Was your assistant Ben Chandler? I know he works there, and it looks kinda like him - hard to tell at that angle.
