Market Days II













Here are a few more scenes from last weekend's Market Days.

In case I neglected to mention it, the weather was absolutely beautiful.




























I don't know what it is about these Market Days signs, but I just love
how they seemed to pop up all over and blend right in.
Maybe I have a thing for sultry sea captains, who knows.
Regardless, I love this man sign.
















This is a not-so-great shot of one oh-so-quirky bird.
(I'm not talking about the human, just to clarify.)


























































































Now these people know how to live.
Hats!
(I really don't mean any harm, but does anyone else
think he resembles Captain Kangaroo? I loved that show, by the way.)























































It was a great weekend.

Speaking of the weekend, next I'll share 
some pictures from Sunday's adventure that included a
boat ride with friends from high school to yet another 
birthday celebration on a deserted Mathews County beach.

In case you missed the last one, click here and here.

Wish I had been there, although the quilts might have made me cry.
My dear friend from high school lost most of her sight last year. She was a wonderful quilter and seamstress, cook and gardener, photographer and...well, she was amazing.
And still is...she has a bit of peripheral vision in one eye, so she's still gardening and cooking and is talking about sewing again.
When I grow up I want to be as brave as she is.

I've been researching weather Virginia, hoping to put my feet in the Atlantic sometime soon.

I want a pith helmet. I think it would look dashing with my rubber ducky. And yes, I immediately thought of the Captain when I saw that gentleman. Also, I'm in love with the fictitious captain on those posters. And I want that patriotic chicken rug. Really, I NEED it.

I do think you have a thing for sultry sea captains. That one glass and wire piece would make a cool hummingbird feeder, wouldn't it? Beautiful artwork here! I'm looking forward to your party at the deserted beach. Fun.

You know how that goes. Thanks for sharing your day. Maybe next year.

Nice artwork everywhere...if you love sultry sea captains, perhaps you have seen the original Rex Harrison/
Gene Tierney movie, " The Ghost and Mrs. Muir" ?
If the pith helmet man wears bangs on his forehead, then he must be a Capt. Kangaroo fan, too.

I know that dude! I have to agree it could be the Captain's brother
