A new discovery in my own backyard – The Pirate Festival of Vallejo! So impressive to see so many people and such elaborated costumes in the 105 degrees’ weather. Luckily, ice creams, drinks and water melons were available everywhere, but the parrots and pet monkeys had to stay home!
Unfortunately, it would seem that we will be covered in most needed rain tomorrow and so I will not have the great photo ops that I had last year in the little town of Benicia. People get very creative decorating their shops on Main Street for the annual competition and it is a fun and colorful experience to stroll up and down the street.
