It's A Parade!

Now what would a parade be with out flags and a tribute to Veterans? Ours started out with a bang! There were old cars in the pre-parade, floats, color guards, marching bands, dancing groups, new cars, and BIG trucks, (my big boy’s personal favorite.) The weather was perfect, the crowds well behaved, and as they say, a good time was had by all. I used the pan feature on my camera and ended up with 700 plus shots….not all of which were worth saving. I will be sharing some of them with you this next week…but then I promise I will move on to something new.

Sequim High School Operetta

As part of the Irrigation Festival, Sequim High School presented it’s 41st annual operetta, 7 Brides and 7 Brothers. Friday was opening night…and it was fantastic. I do hope local readers get a chance to attend. I plan on going a second time. Here three of the brothers are singing “Lonesome Polecat”. For those of you who might not be familiar with this story, it is worth checking out a DVD or video and enjoying a great musical.

Today’s the day! I’m getting sun and wind burned…and hopefully a lot of good photos.

Audubon Society Booth

I love activites that are fun and educational. The Audubon Society provided this for the little ones. They made rubbings of bird feet..and…(my favorite)…handed out books. Love those books!

1 day and counting….(my daughter took my bag chair this evening…she is setting up our chairs early Saturday morning in order to save our place along the parade route)
