The Dudley at Paddington is a busy local between Paddington and Rushcutters Bay.

BUSY on Christmas Eve, but each year we always go a park at Rushcutters Bay right next to the Cruising Yacht Club of Australia where we picnic and wander among the boats before they start the Sydney to Hobart.

The Mid-Autumn Festival is a harvest festival celebrated by ethnic Chinese and Vietnamese people. The festival is held on the 15th day of the eighth month in the Chinese Han calendar and Vietnamese calendar (within 15 days of the autumnal equinox), on the night of the full moon between early September to early October of the Gregorian calendar.
It’s a public holiday in Mainland China, Taiwan and Korea.
Given the Chinese and Korean influence in Eastwood where we live, it ws the perfect marriage of the week for M and convenience!
