Slight diversion on a Sunday

I asked my friend Brenda to go with me to the St. Augustine Art and Craft Festival today.  I rarely ask anyone to go with me to these type of things but I planned ahead and asked Brenda the night before.  She said yes!

The Festival was really nice and full of vendors that I hadn't seen before.  I even saw some crafts and techniques that I hadn't seen before.  All in all it was a great time.  I came away wanting to get creative!

As we were exiting the Festival we both started walking toward this giant playground.  It was full of parents and kids and some big kids like us.  Isn't the entrance beautiful? 

Travel the Universe on the wings of imagination. 

One of the play sections was the Pirate and Mermaid area and you could be a pirate...

or a mermaid!

These were absolutely made for kids - I knocked my head getting into this tiny space.  I wonder if I knocked any sense into my head :) 

Brenda took my picture and I took hers. 

I took a photo of the plaque because I have some very dear friends named Siefker and I had never seen their name before in my travels.   So hello Siefker Family! even-if-I-don't-know-you!  Thank you for a fun place to play.

We saw a wooden lion.


There was even a place to play the xylophone.

Twin Peaks!

At first I though these had blue tape on them - then I realized it was what was left of the original latex grippy stuff.   That's the technical term - grippy stuff.  Looks like they are well worn even if the grippy stuff is gone. 

So I had a slight diversion from the Fa La La La online gift tour I was giving.  It was such a gorgeous day out that I just had to be in it and be one with art and the Swing park, too it seems!  The gift giving tour will conclude tomorrow.

Oh you know, I'm going to link this up with Sundays in my City.  This is what I did in a city near me (St. Augustine, FL) today, on Sunday.  Perfect!  For more SIMC please head on over to Unknown Mami.  She's the best!

I'm in LOVE with those mosaics. You two girls make dashing mermaids, but I wanna see you as ARRRGGGGHHHH pirates too!

Now there's some good clean fun on a Sunday. I love seeing new vendors and getting new ideas---that I'll probably never get around to doing-------but maybe I could do them if I tried. LOL

Honest, I'm better with my hands and crafting tools than I am with Photobucket...

What a fun time you had. I think I would have enjoyed being there. Great pictures as always. So glad your friend joined you.
