A Day At The Fair

No summer is complete without a trip to a county fair. These annual gatherings are an American tradition; the perfect mixture of greasy foods on sticks, barnyard animals, rigged games, and creepy people operating rickety old rides. After hearing that our friend Bill was hosting a logging-sports competition, my sister and I headed out to Whidbey Island to check the sights and sounds at the 2009 Island County Fair.

The guy who carved that eagle was the same guy featured in the Pemco Insurance commercial as the “Roadside Woodcarver Guy.” He was good.
