Any of you that are familiar with the Carolinas know, that a temperature reading of 100 degrees, (which was the LOW of the weekend), accompanied by the humidity can only mean a much higher heat index... "What the temperature REALLY feels like!"
It was really too hot to do much of anything! So we spent most of our days napping, browsing and reading at the Barnes & Nobles across the street from the hotel, and EATING!
So, Note to Readers: Don't expect anything too exciting & profound in this post! LOL!
Part of the festival was a Tractor Show and Pull... We carried two of ours. They anticipated a display of over 600 hundred antique tractors!
I was so excited, because a few weeks ago, while I was searching for the infamous MACRO button on my camera, I discovered I also have a "fireworks" feature!
We did see a few bizarre and unusual things while in Raleigh...
A Super-sized shopping cart! Can you imagine how much it would cost to fill this one up with groceries???
and pig races....
David spent most of his time, while at the Festival, feeding animals in the Petting Zoo...
which was "right next door" to our tractors, ....DOWNWIND, need I say more???...
This cute little curly brown mop-head calf
followed David all around the circle of the petting zoo!
He was a cutie-patootie!!!
On Sunday, our last day in Raleigh, we visited the Farmer's Market!
But, the temperature was 102 degrees while we were there, so we took a very short stroll around the market!
I found a basket of Fuchsia, I have been wanting to try.
If anyone has any pointers, please share! :)
When I returned home, the gardenias were blooming
and their sweet smell just permeated the air!
Oh, There Is No Place Like Home! "smiles"
Hope you all had a wonderful weekend! ~Rhonda ;)
