Today’s excursion was organized by HG – such a treat to not have to worry about the entertainment for a change! Don’t you think though, it a bit curious that our destination of HG’s choice was right next door to a Fire Station? He claims not to have known ……… I shall give him the benefit of my doubt – this time.
The Bellevue Strawberry Festival has been running for over 80 years, although surprisingly there weren’t a huge number of strawberries there! Strawberries were a main crop in Bellevue back in the day when it was just fields and farms. However, we did think the singer on stage sang beautifully and did her best to look strawberry like.
Meanwhile we did our best to taste a few yummy things …… although I wasn’t brave enough to buy an Elephant’s Ear fearing it was loaded with sugar?
Forgiveness must be asked for the shoddy photos – taken on my very old Nokia mobile phone with butter smeared fingers!! Trip Leader forgot the camera – or was that really my responsibility? We will iron that one out before our next excursion 🙂
