That exciting experience over we decided to head out about 12:30 just in time for the rain to start. Stopped by her Dad's tent to chat for a minute and then the skies opened up. We were carrying our fold up umbrellas and was just laughed at in the arena by this lady about us not needing them. Well the laugh is on her, I am sure she got soaked.
|we have our bright umbrellas great for finding each other|
|the water here about 4 inches deep|
|The cafe with 4-6 inches of water|
Picked Suzie back up at 4 and made our way for supper. Cedar plank salmon potatoes and the salad, excellent! Good food, great family time and a nice way to wrap up another awesome day.
Thanks for stopping by and hope you enjoyed the sale as much as wee did, sorry for all the pics but I did get rid of most of the ones I took.
