Vesak celebrations

Vesak was on 24/5/13. We went to the celebrations yesterday at the Buddhist centre in Cairns.

It was a lovely evening and we had yummy vegetarian food after the devotional ceremony.

The only setback was going home to a dog who has not happy about being left at home. Tara was quite unimpressed; next year, I think I’ll take her.

  2. I’m sure Tara would be a very good pup if she got to go. Adorable!

  3. Tara is still teething. Celebrations is always great.
