We haven't really gone anywhere this summer that you could call a vacation. BUT... we have made a number of DAY trips here and there. A few weekends ago we caught a festival in full swing close to home. It was hot outside. Temps were over 95. My hubby doesn't do well in that kind of heat because of his COPD. But he knew how much I wanted to see all the merchants and entertainment there. So off we went. He sat out most of the time and I scooted along from booth to booth.
FOOD vendors had a BLOCK to themselves. The smells were intoxicating and the temptation was great.
I must confess I LOVE gryos. And wanted one. But we had just eaten at home, so I really wasn't hungry and neither was the hubby.
Colorful dresses lined the street.
Purses and shades were in abundance.
Earrings galore. And dream catchers too.
Interesting hats and more shoulder bags.
And a booth dedicated to pumpkin boxes.
Little dancers were center stage putting on a show.
A man juggled his balls.
An artist drew impromptu portraits.
And we saw the CUTEST baby in the whole world.
(No relation to us, I might add.)
Suddenly the sky opened up and it began to pour rain.
The festivities were over for the day.
But I managed to snag one
of these gorgeous Harvest Trees before I left.
Ain't it pretty?
