Sheep & Wool in New York
Tunis, pictured at top, was the featured breed last year, I believe. I'm partial to the redheads, you know. I don't think I even knew there was a featured breed the first year I went to Rhinebeck -- they were all stars in my book.
I think I ate more at this festival, and definitely drank more -- continuing the tradition, begun last year, of draining beer kegs everywhere I go. The weather was perfect -- for t-shirts and tank tops. It was not really sweater weather -- oh, there were plenty of woolens on the fairgrounds, but I don't know how they did it. I'd have melted, for sure. I wore Williamsro to dinner on Saturday night because it was a little bit cool outside, but otherwise... Do you know how much space two wool sweaters take up in a suitcase? I could have used that space!
Pictures and more tomorrow -- you can check my few shots on Flickr in the meantime. It's going to take me a while to catch up around here.
