Riding through rural farms in the early morning sun.
An assortment of wheat & seagrass in the morning fog for some amber waves of grain.

The Port Mahon pier may be a beautiful photo-op for me…
but you definitely have to watch your step!

Another early morning ride, this time along the East Coast for a change of pace.
The pier at Port Mahon is a beautiful place to start the day.

Okay, so I’m more of a “sunrise” than a “sunset” kind of guy.
But this one tonight was pretty darn AMAZING!!!

Not a bad way to kick-off your morning! Another ribbon for the collection…
and a nice acknowledgement to start Day Two of the Hinsdale Fine Arts Festival.
We’re here until 5:00pm today – swing by and say “Hi”!!!

looking a bit from the morning rain.

But it has stopped raining for now as we prepare for Day Two
of the Hinsdale Fine Arts Festival.

By lunch time the clouds had moved out and we had a beautiful afternoon in Burlington Park. Hoping for more of the same tomorrow… so be sure to stop by and say “Hi” in Booth #102. It’s the Hinsdale Fine Arts Festival… rain or shine! … fingers crossed for shine!!!

Okay, so Day One of the Hinsdale Fine Arts Festival was a bit on the soggy side. Rain all morning to dampen everyone’s spirits. Luckily, pottery only looks better when it’s wet, right?! And when the clouds moved out, the afternoon was much better!

Gotta love a good Friday art fair set-up. White tent & shelving done…
for tomorrow I fill them with pots!!!!

Remember this weekend is the Hinsdale Fine Arts Festival in Burlington Park
in downtown Hinsdale. 10:00am to 5:00pm both Saturday & Sunday.
