The Judge and I attended the Mid-State Fair in Paso Robles, California this past weekend. What a dandy experience.
Paso Robles sits half-way between the Beautiful Queen San Francisco and the Urban Dude King, Los Angeles.
The Judge and I enjoyed the simplicity of 4H kids grooming their sheep, high school kids involved in tractor restoration, and families actually communicating by looking at each other instead of at their smart phones.
Here are some of the images of the day. I hope you enjoy them as much as I enjoyed taking them.
The Judge loves the exhibition buildings where hawkers are pitching their wares.
We then went to my favorite part of any fair: the agricultural exhibits. The Judge did his best to act enthusiastic about the aroma, the animals, and the exhibits.
This year’s theme was Route 66. Here is a photo of a real jalopy, the type Steinbeck’s Joads used to come West.
