Last Fair of the Season

Friday was a beautiful fall day here in Maine. Perfect to attend the biggest and final fair of the season.




My husband and I left Friday morning around 8am and got to the fair around 10:00. We grabbed something to eat right away.. decisions, decisions.. anything fried you can think of, Thai food, Italian sausage, pizza, ice cream, bar-b-que, hamburg, turkey legs and the list goes on and on... we decided on french fries with cheese on top! Yummy!!! then a Pumpkin cheesecake Ice cream!
We went into the horse pulling ring,, yes, horses pull over 5000 pounds of weight and are given a five minute time limit to see how far they can pull.... it's great to see these great big work horses doing what they are bred to do..work.
Headed over to the race way later.. yes I bet and won! Harness racing is the type of racing in Maine!! It's fun and exciting.


We walked around for a long time looking at crafts, animals and exhibitions of Grange Halls in the state! It's a wonderful place to be and to just enjoy the farming and more low key way of life that is offered in Maine farming communities.


"One, singular sensation, every little step we take"



After a very long day.. home around 10:00am.... we headed home with a deep fried Twinkies in hand.... delicious!!

So happy to hear you had a great time. You have gotten really good at taking those pics of you and Jim. I have to admit though, you look a lot like your Mother in this photo.
Love, Your Sista
