County Fair

Coos County Fairgrounds

All my life I've gone to the same county fair every summer, usually with my mom and there's always fried vegetables and elephant ears involved. Our new county is over three times bigger than our old one, but only a third of the population. This is Oregon. And it is beautiful.

Motorcycle Ride


We parked our car by way of a person on horseback, with mountains of trees surrounding the fairgrounds. The most beautiful skies I've ever seen have been here. Last night was no exception. I'll maybe forgive them for not having elephant ears. Everyone was in line for scones. SCONES. Who knew.

  2. Was Kenny Ahern there? Looks like a fun time was had at your new Fair. It will never seem the same without you and the kids with me at our Fair. But I did start a new tradition with Abby & Jack this year...I can't believe they didn't have elephant ears! Did they have fried veggies?

    1. No fried veggies but they had lots of other good things to eat. I just wasn't hungry! Next year maybe you can come with us!
