This coming Monday, August 3rd, Australians in the Northern Territory will be celebrating Picnic Day. It is a public holiday over there. Lots of Australians use this long weekend to have a picnic at a local park or attend or participate in sporting events. A big one is the Harts Range Annual Races which features bull rides, a utility truck competition, and… get this… lizard races!
If you live in Australia or have celebrated Picnic Day in Australia, I’d love to hear about your experience!
But hey—we don’t have to live in Australia to have a picnic this weekend, do we? Here’s a little inspiration as you pack your lunch-in-a-basket.
It’s Herend porcelain in the fishnet pattern, which I told you about on Thursday because Judge Willa Carson of my Hunt for Justice book series collects the Herend animal figurines painted in the fishnet pattern.
Perhaps you might take a bus to your picnic site for Picnic Day. As you know, buses are Jack Reacher’s preferred method of transportation. But in the U.S., and in some other countries, buses aren’t exactly seen as glamorous.
Here’s proof. In Herend pieces, I found a train…
and a car…
But no bus. Which is kind of exactly why Jack Reacher loves buses. Buses help Reacher stay under the radar. (More on that topic HERE!)
Here’s one more Herend piece as inspiration for your picnic this weekend:
Don’t forget to pack a book! Happy Picnic Day, and Happy Reading!
