Apple Fair 2008

Yesterday in town we had our annual Apple Fair. Pretty much the town green in front of the Cathedral is taken over by stalls dedicated to celebrating all things apple. It’s one of my favourite things about living here, I think it’s just an adorably eccentric idea.

This year though I made the slight mistake of walking down with Miss L on her scooter supervised by Paul and me walking Betty. This meant that when we got there it was impossible to really go and look at anything with a 5 year old wanting to scoot off in all directions and a 70lb dog who didn’t understand that most people didn’t want to share their hog roasts!

So I didn’t get to shoot any really good photos this year which was a shame. I saw some great shots as well, and then Betty would see another dog or some food…

But I have learnt my lesson for next year, no scooters or hounds 🙂

  1. It is lovely, they have so much for the children here to do even though it’s a really small town. There is a real community feel as well here which seems to be sadly pretty unusual for the UK these days. We really love it here 🙂

  2. I love apples and would have loved an apple fair. We don’t get much opportunity for apples here in So Cal!! The apple orchards are up north about 2 hours, but the fires and santa anna winds are blowing….so I just get to be there by reading your blog and seeing your pictures…..and that knitting circle, how cute!

  3. what a place to have an apple fair- oh to dream- I’m pretty much in the same place as corinne- no apples around me- it’s about a 3 hour drive in all directions to find them
