On Thursday, we not only walked down the trail, we also strolled around at the Beltrami County Fair, where we worked in the Bemidji Pioneer booth. These are some photos of the horticultural competition. You’d think I actually was a gardener, from as often as I post garden-related photos!
Here’s today’s quote, from Bethany:
"It’s pouring out!"
Not only was that quote before we started walking, it was before we even met for the day. In fact, it was over the phone as she called to say she was on her way.
She still wanted to walk; she just wanted to borrow a shirt with sleeves.
We skipped the trail and hit the sidewalks on Minnesota and America avenues. I tried not to take any garden pictures, but there was one too pretty to turn down. We also checked out a nice house for sale. The rain was pretty light until near the end, when it started coming down hard enough that I looked down the street to see how far away my apartment was.
We were scheduled for a shift in the Pioneer’s booth at the fair from 2-4 p.m., so we headed over there around 1:15 so we could wander around for a bit first and take some photos. It was a quiet afternoon in the booth; not many people were in the commercial building, compared to what I would expect for the weekend. We talked a lot with the woman in the ACLU booth on one side of us, and I got one of my fingernails done by the guy in the booth on the other side. We also stopped to chat about the Lake Bemidji Dragon Boat Festival with Brian Bissonette at the Paul Bunyan Telephone booth, and I visited with my insurance agent, Ken Cobb of Pine Country Insurance.
Of course, I ended up taking pictures of flowers at the fair, too.
Here are two pictures for today’s quiz:
Wednesday’s photo was from the Masonic Temple near downtown Bemidji.
Have a great weekend!
