Labor Day weekend is Blackberry festival weekend in Bremerton, WA. In spite of all the fun we were having at the ocean we decided to return in time to experience it.
And experience it we did! We enjoyed the band that was playing, wandered among the booths, mouths watering at the huge variety of food available. I even saw people wandering around tearing into giant barbecued turkey legs.
I held out against the deep fried Twinkies, the corn dogs, and the glazed nuts, but I couldn't resist stopping at a booth where a local artisan was selling hand-painted glassware. It was so gorgeous I couldn't resist asking her to paint me some daisy glasses to go with my vintage Vernonware. It's hard to find glasses with daisies on them and one of my old ones has already gone missing. (How can you lose a glass in a condo?!)
We also ran into people we knew, which made the experience all the more fun. I am enjoying small town life. Living here is almost as good as living in Icicle Falls.
