Nov. 5 – later p.m.
It's race week (actually 2 weeks) in Melbourne. The Melbourne Cup race was Tuesday and the racing and playing go on for days. The women dress “to the nines” in fancy cocktail or formal dresses and hats or “fascinators.” They had fascinators on sale in a store so Phyllis and I went in to find out what they are. They are fancy things that go in the hair but aren't a complete hat. Judy took pictures of some young ladies who were on their way to a night out after Oaks Race Day (it's Ladies Day) at the races.
