Maybe it’s habit from all those years of going back to school in September, but it seems fitting, on this Labor Day weekend, to write about my summer vacation. It only lasted two weeks, but the weather was great and my sister was visiting me from Canada, so we packed a lot into a short time. Of course, she wanted to spend time at the beach. This is East Matunuck state beach, our favorite because of the excellent boogie boarding, which we still do with abandon.
We couldn’t pass up the Washington County Fair. Here are a few images from opening day.
We loved this new mural on one of the buildings near the entrance.
I loved this scene so much I tweeted it, so forgive me if you have already seen this photo. It was very touching to see the two exhibitors offering water to their show chicken on a hot afternoon. Their faces show such compassion.
A boy and his rabbit, waiting to enter the show ring. I had a pet rabbit, (his name was Dennis) so I know that they will do this if they are relaxed and you put them on their backs. This rabbit was so chill, though.
I asked this girl if I could take a photo of her with her beautiful chicken, and she obliged.
We watched the carousel for a while. Just look at the joy on that little boy’s face! This made us talk about the fun things we did when we were little kids that we still remember today. Happy times stay with you.
