Fairhope Arts Festival

Today's activities were organized around eating - what else? Actually, the Lutheran church in Fairhope was hosting a German Sausage Dinner, complete with sauerkraut and German potato salad. Randy saw the flier up at the clubhouse and that was it; we had to go. Fairhope's annual (55th, mind you!) Arts & Crafts Festival was also in full swing, so we took a look around after we ate.

Earlier this week while in Fairhope for dulcimer practice, Pat and I had seen some of the art that was going to be displayed around town. We were particularly drawn to the various pelicans that had been painted and mounted on what was supposed to be pier pylons. They were as varied as your imagination can wonder. I love pelicans! I fell in love with them when we were in Florida a couple of years ago. I just think they are the coolest. Anyway, that's where I was headed today - to find some of the pelicans.

You have to understand - this festival is a major deal in Fairhope. It's a juried event, so you have big deal artists, sculptors, crafters, etc., participating. And it takes up the entire downtown area. We're talking a two mile square of nothing but booths! So, we walked around a little, but after yesterday's hike, Dick & Pat weren't as into walking around town.
Well, I just wanted to get pictures of a few pelicans and I would be happy. There were several more that I didn't get. So, that's what we did. Here are my two favorite pelicans. The other ones are on our Webshots site. Have fun!

Next week looks to be another quiet week. Not much planned. I'll be continuing with my dulcimer lesson and practices and I'm sure Randy will be at washing the rig, if the weather permits.

Take care of one another. Until the next time . . .

    Since when did you play the dulcimer? Are you wearing little shoes with turned up toes and bells on them too?
