Ah, what a day. Just the kind of day we have been waiting for.
This morning we went to the parade for the Salmon Arm Fall Fair. Where we are parked is just three blocks from the fair grounds and the beginning of the parade.
We found a place in the shade, sat in our chairs and watched the parade pass by. Parker was enjoying himself too although he was confused by the llamas, afraid of the horses and wanted to follow the dogs.
After a few chores and Doug’s short visit with his Mom, we went to the fair.
We qualified as seniors and saved $2.00 on the $10.00 price of admission!
We toured the animal barns fairly quickly as even though it was late in the afternoon, it was still very hot.
We enjoyed the flowers and the crafts. (this one’s for you Marsha – weaving from Ponderosa Pine needles)
We had some dinner and watched the talent show. These young girls and boys were amazing.
From behind us we heard a roar and a gasp, and were able to witness these crazy young guys (maybe girls too) flying through the air with the greatest of ease. Oh to be young again, not just crazy.
It was a full day, we enjoyed it all. We walked back crossing three playing fields in our bare feet.
