Fun=good. Glad it was a nice day for the fair.

You can tell a turkey vulture because it flies as though it were drunk. Srsly.

What fun! I love a good bike ride, and the county fair to boot! Darlene

sounds like a nice day.
The sunflowers look very cheerful :)

What a fun day! Enjoyed the pictures--thanks for sharing your day with us.

A mini rainbow! Looks like you had a wonderful day!

Looked like you have a wonderful Pollyanna Sunday! We made a peach pie at our house!

I love those days with no plans, where you just stumble upon something fun!

My grandmother calls those mini rainbows "Sun Dogs" and it bodes either good weather or bad depending on if the dogs are chasing the sun or the sun is chasing the dogs.

Wow! How close were those turkey vultures to you?

Sometimes it's nice to just have a day like that... wandering and spending time together. Those are some of my favorite days :)

sounds like a heavenly sort of a day.

Sounds like you had a great day. Love the sunflowers and the purple fence- it's just happy.

Looks like you had a splendid day indeed, and what a nice picture of the hawk! That lovely bird is indeed a buzzard hawk, or buteo, and appears to be a Ferruginous Hawk. We have many such hawks in our area, which is the largest concentraton of nesting raptors in North America, the Snake River Birds of Prey National Conservation Area. Here's a link to more info if you're interested:

Thanks so much for sharing so many cool photos with us!!

i just love turkey vultures. they are my favorites!! in the summer afternoons, they fly in big lazy circles over my house, on the thermals. they almost look to be floating on the air. (they never look under the influence.)

Looks like a great day!

I miss that fair, I entered that fair in the kids knitting category. Eons ago. (feels like)

Snow Queen sure is a pretty pattern...

no deep fried Snickers or anything at the fair? :)

The little rainbows are called "sun dogs". They appear about 20 degrees on either side of the sun, just after sunrise or before sunset when sunlight passes through thin cirrus clouds.

I love sun dogs.

I love pointing them out to people who have never noticed them because they are just way cool.

a Pollyanna day in your world looks pretty good. :)

What lovely pictures! Sounds like you did have a wonderful day!

How fun, a fair! I love small fairs. Did you eat some cotton candy? Were there any good displays of crafts or livestock? I love looking at the animals at fairs, they're always so big and healthy and beautifully groomed. Even the pigs. I still remember a pig I saw at a fair when I was a teenager that had to be the biggest pig the universe has ever seen. And he knew he was beautiful! :)

Once again I can't see the picture of the Snow Queen socks. I guess I just have to wait for the book.

How wonderful to take a Pollyanna day! We're at 56 days of 100 degree plus heat this summer here in San Antonio, Texas, and I think we've had about an inch and a half of rain in the past 3 months. A brisk bike ride sounds wonderful, but not in this heat. Thank goodness it's air conditioned indoors for knitting!

We have lots of turkey vultures here also. I liked the sunflowers on your ride.

Looked like you had a good day. :)

Great photos! I love the coming shawl. My next yarn lusting comes on!
