The town festival continues. This morning was the Pet Parade. There were bunnies, rats, chickens, snakes, lizards, hermit crabs, miniature horses, turtles, and lots and lots of dogs. The owners have as much fun dressing up as they have in decorating their pets. (Most of the pets aren't so excited by the whole thing.) It makes for quite the unique event.
There is also a classic car show going on. I like looking at them, but even better are the conversations I get to hear. People enjoy talking about how a certain car reminds them of a particular time in their life---or of a person. The air was ripe with nostalgia.
As soon as the tide goes out a little farther, a town baseball game will take place on the beach. I haven't decided whether or not to wander down and watch. It is another beautiful day to be out enjoying what Life has to offer.
