At the Marin County Fair

marin county fairIt might have been The Happiest Fair on Earth, if it weren’t 93 degrees! That was a little challenging, but we got through the worst of it, and there was a low point when we thought we might not get through…but air conditioned exhibition halls, cold water and salad brought us around. We arrived at 3:30 and the incredible Cajun band from New Orleans, Beausoleil, was playing gorgeous music with great stage acoustics. We were sitting in the shade. Then the temperature set us back a bit, but we came around. We enjoyed the Bonsai exhibition, especially the redwoods…see link.untitled ferris wheelThat’s me and Melinda up at the top of the ferris wheel enjoying the view of Mt. Tamalpais and the entire region…after the temperature dropped into the 80s. That is the only ride I will go on…these days.

Although this 4th, the Mission neighborhood put on an incredible array of local shows that lit up the night for two hours with neighbors spending a pretty penny on some elaborate displays. Still not as good as the Marin County Fair.
