I'm beginning to think the rain is following us since we left Corpus Christi. Either we are dealing with flash flood warnings or soggy sites. We were going to stay for one week, but the weatherman says we are in for a week of rain, so we decided to extend our time for another week. I'm hoping once this front passes us by, we will start seeing a little sunshine.
We went to the Baldwin County Strawberry Festival last weekend. A good day to be outdoors with it being overcast and - Surprise! - one of the few days that we did not get rain. Apparently, we were not the only ones that thought it would be a good idea to arrive early. The park was already packed by the time we got there by 11 am.
Of course, I could not pass up a fresh strawberry shortcake....sorry no photo! I ate it before I even thought about a photo. It was delicious! Along with arts/crafts and food booths, they had a small carnival setup..........
I took a lot of photos, but the slow internet has been too frustrating for downloading.
I kept seeing this young woman in the crowd walking in front of us. I love her over boots.....or galoshes or wellingtons...anyway, I wanted to get a picture of them. She was on the move and disappeared quickly into the crowd, but not before I managed to get one blurry photo. I think I have a weakness for polka dots, although I never wear them. These were too cute!
See, even the dogs were styling at the festival. This one looks quite comfortable in his yellow slicker.
Apparently, someone was in a hurry for their strawberry shortcake and did not want to wait for the parking attendants at the intersection. They tried to cross the ditch from the highway to the empty parking space next to us. I wonder how often this happens during the festival?
We drove along the coast to Pensacola on Sunday. We stopped at one of the Florida State parks along the way to stretch our legs and to renew our state park pass.
On The Cutting Board
I finished embroidering 14 snowmen. Between heavy rains and flash flood warnings keeping us indoors, I have been focusing on hand embroidery for the last couple of weeks. It might be springtime outside, but I am building snowmen indoors!
So, back to sewing or maybe a quick walk before it starts raining again.
