A Saturday Morning at the Farmers Market

Another Saturday a few weeks ago at the farmers market. The weather was warm. Making it especially nice to linger. So I did.

And this Saturday there was something else that made me want to linger a little longer. A three woman string band. The music was soft and almost mystical. There were soft notes riding the sunlight on a breeze through the trees. Sweet.

Pensacola Christmas Parade 2011

Last Friday evening, Drew and I went downtown to watch the Christmas Parade. It was quite impressive...lots of floats, bands and people.

These pictures are not so great. Low light and moving objects make for a bad photography combo. But, here they are anyway.

I don't know how Christmas Parades are in other parts of the country, but this was the beginning of our parade.

My quest for Santa

I went to the flea market this morning on a quest to find Santa. But I didn't find him. I showed the photo, inquired. Felt like Nancy Drew sleuthing about. I did talk to Norma and Sandy in the front office and had a nice lead. Norma said she remembers him, but his name escapes her. So, I am to call her back.

But, I did get a couple of photos from the market.

Looking for Santa

My mission this weekend is to find this man. Not a normal man. But Santa. A little strange. But not for this time of year I suppose. At least my chances are hugely increased.

I took this picture last year at the Gulf Breeze flea market. Now I would really like to get a model release from him. So off to the flea market I will go. Hi ho hi ho.  Wish me luck.

Seaside Community Yardsale 2011 - 5

More of Seaside. And the next picture is of the couple behind the Airstream trailer. Intriguing. At least to me it was.

Seaside Community Yardsale 2011 - 4

More from our day at the Seaside Community Yard Sale. These are more or less images of me wandering about and photographing what catches my fancy. Not the yard sale per say. More of the community.

Seaside Community Yardsale 2011 - 3

You really never know what you will see at this yard sale. Jars of marbles. Vintage dresses. Galvanized watering cans full of lavender. Pink ribbons. Red framed mirrors. Blue enamel tea pots. Old suitcases. Furniture with so much character that you swear it is talking to you. Leopard print lampshades. A child's smocked dress...the list goes on and on.

A feast for the eyes and the imagination.
