From fair to fair!

Once a year we are having a "Fair" where I live, but this time we preferred to visit another town who has having a "Fair" too the same day. It is a more than one hour drive from our place. But driving together with my hubby is moment to cherish.

And now here we come! The sign says in English "Welcome to Rissa".

Green grass. My entry to ABC Wednesday

   This is me with the wheat field at the background! Soon it will be  harvest time.

But we are going to the Fair. So come along.

You might think that we are going to a barn seeing these horses.

But as you can see, they rent these horses for kids that want a horseride.

Anyway, the dogs are out too to visit the fair.

Well, they are lucky that they are alive and free. Unlike this swine. It's life ends there to be a food for the hungry visitors. One of the menu for the day.

And an expert from the Philippines, Winston grilled people's lunch that day. Well, that is life. One's man death is another one's bread.

Well, how about that! Meeting fellow countrymen. Really, the Filippinos are eveywhere. Feels like home.

And they are selling lumpia, pancit and siomai.

Anyway, there are more to see. Here are old cars and tractors. Just for display.

Different activities like a ride in a helicopter, rolling in  big plastic ballons and tournament.

My entry to Skywatch Friday!
And of course different stands selling their products. like this one. They sells thick and warm clothes and shoes.

I want this one, but it is not for sale:)

More products to sell!

Lots of them...

And flowers everywhere....

But I didn't buy anything than pancit and lumpia. And for dessert my husband bought ice cream in cones for us. Isn't he sweet?

But this one touched my heart. A girl from Russia who had her pet with her. A turtle.

This cutie made our day at the fair complete.

Did you have  a nice time with us?

Trip to town!

My older friend have  some errand in town and  needed a companion. So I said that I can accompany her. It is one hour trip from our place by fast ferry boat. 

This is our means of transportation:)

Inside the fast ferry boat. Lillan was very happy for the ride. 

And me too of course!

As you can see through the glass window, the weather was very nice and the sea was peaceful that day.

And of course I won't miss the opportunity to take some shots. Under is a military ship.

Hope you too can  enjoy the ride with us ! 

Reflection on the water. The views are amazing, but the glass window made  the pictures blurred.

Anyway, they are still pleasing to the eyes. So I share them with you.

Clouds and the mountain reflected on the sea water....

Same here......

I believe this is a lighthouse.

A farm.....

Reflection of the boat in the seawater....

Now, Lillan taking the stroll in town. 

A big statue in the center of the town....

A few stands selling their products. Still very early, so  there are only few people on the street..

City square.....

Now we are hungry and the nearest food chain is McDonald...

Me waiting for our food......

Almost no customers yet....

And typical McDonald food.....

After eating and shopping, we are ready to go home again.

But this captured my about you?

And the viking troll!

New Clarion Hotel finished building this year.

In front of the hotel. One day....maybe one day...I am going to sleep here:)

Me and friend Lillan waiting for the fast ferry boat to come.

And the seagull said goodbye!

Hope you too enjoyed the trip to town!
