it’s Labour Day weekend and the Saanich Fair is back for the 148th year


the weather was good and the crowds were happy

except for some in the parking lots


patience is a virtue, folks!

the animals were better behaved than some of the humans

P1070517I have a special fondness for the donkeys

P1070518despite the signs it is amazing the number of people who insist on sticking their hands in pens

P1070511pat this llama if you must

don’t you love the knitted leggings?

P1070510the Victoria and Deep Cove Weaver’s Guilds were there
