Last Saturday was filled with lots of new things for me, and for my husband too. The reason? It was the first time for us to directly witness a horse race together! Not in Melbourne, a large city which prepares a holiday especially for their horse race, but rather a local horse race held in Emerald, a small town in Queensland, Australia.
Even though this was a local horse race in a smallish town, the event surprised me because of the density of the crowd in attendance and the gaiety of their appearance. Unlike large cities in Australia, in Emerald it is rare to see people dress up for their daily lives. However, that Saturday at the races was magical, because all the women looked glamourous.
