A day at the fair

 We went to the Williamstown Fair this past weekend; time to check out all the winning jams, jellies, sewing and quilting, baking and floral arrangements.

 Then over to the farm machinery. I got behind the wheel of this huge harvester.

 At a price tag of $700,000 I had to see it for myself. Ten steps up to get behind the steering wheel. It has its own computer and a jump seat for a friend to tag along.

 Then to the Rare Breed Tent. One of my faves.

 I got a kick out of these geese checking out the Indian Runner Ducks next door.

 These slim ducks are shy and stay together in a sort of pack.

 Outside the critters were cooling off in the shade. Looks like the little calf is smiling.

Inside were some longhorn cattle. Always lots to see at the fair!

This year we decided to try the Mexican food. "Authentic" Mexican poutine (Richard loved that) and fish tacos. The poutine had shredded pork and a hot chipotle gravy with caramelized onions. Pretty darn good actually!

The harvester is certainly huge. We had some buckwheat crepes with cheese and tomato and pesto. Very yummy. The fair is always fun.

I think you should have a harvester like that. I can just imagine you driving it around!
