Even though this is our twelfth summer on the island, Martin and I have never been to the annual County Show ~ until this year, when I volunteered to help run a stall promoting The Crafty Bees, in return for free entry. (Well there had to be some perks!)
During the afternoon my lovely husband turned up unexpectedly on his motorbike and ~ in between chatting and handing out information to prospective new members ~ I took a stroll around the showground with him, soaking up the atmosphere.
It was a sunny day with a frisky breeze, so not too hot. There were classes for the ‘best’ animals, show~jumping competitions, a dog show, various displays, a Women’s Institute tent, fairground rides, food concessions, retail stalls and so much more.
The Artist took some snapshots of his favourite attractions on my iPhone, not realising that
he’d I’d accidentally applied a colour filter until we reviewed them. I guess that’s one of the drawbacks of using a touchscreen in direct sunlight but it actually it suits the retro~vibe of the show, reminiscent of my 1950’s childhood,:
