Wayzgoose 2013

We had great weather and a good crowd showing up, so altogether it was a wonderful day.

We actually drove to Grimsby the afternoon before the show, and stayed at the Beamer Falls B&B so we could be fresh and rested for the show. Before dinner we took a walk along a branch of the Bruce Trail which leads to the edge of the Niagara Escarpment overlooking the entire town of Grimsby. I finally identified a bird call I had been hearing for years as a type of woodpecker. We drove back into town to an excellent dinner at the Elm Street Café, after which I retired for the evening while Audrey lounged in the hot tub for a while. Lily, who finds Wayzgoose “boring,” stayed for a sleepover at a friend’s.

After a good breakfast at the B&B we drove to the Grimsby Public Library and Art Gallery to get our stuff set up. Unfortunately we were in the Carnegie Commons building (Grimsby’s original Carnegie Library) so we had to drag all our stuff up a flight of stairs, but the fair had plenty of volunteers to help. We got things set up and then the crowds came; business was pretty steady through most of the day, tapering off in the last hour.

After packing up, we had appetizers and a dinner as part of the fair, drove home, picked up Lily, and finally got some rest after a long day.
