Had a lovely day at the Ekka on Saturday. I hadn’t been to the Brisbane show before so I was looking forwards to seeing how it compared with the shows of my youth.

I’m a bit old for showbags and wasn’t really in the mood for rides, but there was still plenty to see. Highlight was probably feeding baby sheep and cows, although I did get head-butted by a cranky donkey!

The grounds themselves were a bit crumbly at the edges, and we always seemed to be at the back of something. There was no programme of events for the day, so I missed anything that we didn’t just stumble upon.

Still, i’m pleased we went.
