Sunday at the County Fair
As we drove through the countryside on the way to the county fair, I took some pictures of what it looks like out there.
The weather was beautiful and sunny for driving past cornfields.
Michigan isn't all flat, but these little rises are about all you get around here. This is an area where you hardly ever see bedrock - it's buried deep in sand and gravel.
I didn't think to take a picture of the gravel mine we passed.
We went by some cows and their calves out in the pasture (and a reflection in the window - it was sunny!)
The sun angle is lower now, so it gets in your eyes instead of being overhead. Fall is coming, but for now everything is green.
And here we have soybeans and a hayfield up to the tree line.
Almost there now!
When we get to the fair, the first thing we do is split up.
My husband takes our son to get a wristband for the carnival rides. I take my camera and head out for the animal barns.
And then there was this guy, who I can only call Mr. Patient.Can you see that he is only held in the stanchion with a little twist of nylon rope? He stood there placidly while the man on the other side of him shaved his shoulder. Meanwhile the woman in the pink shirt was shaving his tail. All he did was stand there and shift his weight.
I love the county fair.
Tomorrow, some actual knitting!
