free, healthy (and hot)

The forecast included a heat alert, so we started out early!
We picked up a map and followed it.
 Twenty rocking chairs painted by local artists
 were arranged primarily around the courthouse square.
 It added up to a free,
 and entertaining morning!
 We also checked out a few of the thrift stores,
looking for books by Claire Bee--sports stories requested by one of our grandsons.
 With no luck in THAT department,
 we enjoyed a great dinner buffet before heading home.
 I believe there are other towns that host similar events
 in the summertime...
 How about YOURS?
 I believe this last chair was my favorite.  
It caught my eye from a distance, and up close we discovered
that the design was burnt into the wood!

  6. Isn't it just amazing how different each one feels? An artists personality really comes out in events like this.

  7. Looks like a great outing. What fun it must have been to see all the rockers in person.
