We made our way back into Rockport Texas today. Our site was waiting quietly for us. The Castle pulled us into the site and we were all set up by noon. Then it was off to get some lunch.

It turns out this weekend is something called Seafair or close to that. The main square of land at the harbor is closed off with fencing. Then you are supposed to by a ticket to let you in so you can wander around all the sales booths and let vendors try to sell you their stuff. The OFM has never understood the sense of paying someone to let them try to sell you overpriced stuff. As far as he is concerned the vendors should pay the Teams to put up with their sales pitches.

When  some folks have asked if we are going to Seafair, the OFM asks how much are they paying the Teams to attend. We get all sorts of strange looks and sometimes nasty comments. To the OFM that would be like paying Walmart, Sears etc to let us come in to shop for products. NOPE NOT EVEN CLOSE TO HAPPENING.

We know of much better ways for trying to have tooooo much fun.
