Second show this weekend, in Cataumet

It's been a busy week. Wednesday, set up the tent at Windmill Green in Eastham (on the Outer Cape, about an hour east of here), then leave the pots in boxes and come back early Thursday to set up the display, stay all day Thursday in a very hot sun and few buyers, then drive home and come back Friday to hotter sun and the same situation. Then pack the whole thing up in the truck and drive home.
I'm still tired from that one. And there's another show tomorrow, this time in nearby Cataumet at the art center there. It's always a nice little local show and usually a moneymaker, too. And I like the people who run it. My potter friend Kim Medeiros will be there, as I think my glassblower friend Bryan Randa will, also. And the weather is supposed to be good. Last year we were up to our ankles in water on a very rainy Sunday. Should be better this time.
I thought I'd show you what a more or less empty craft fair looks like on a sunny beach day on Cape Cod. Hence the photos. Windmill Green is a lovely little spot, with a great old windmill. Very few people this past week, though.
My favorite photo is at the bottom, a nice glimpse of the colors of summer on Cape Cod. She was waiting for her family, which came in the car behind her, with four kayaks.

Hope the Sunday show has a great crowd - and great sales!

Like farmers, we are usually hoping that the next crop will be better. Good Luck today.

Oh jeez, those outdoor shows....
Love that last pic, it would have made a nice feature photo for the local paper back in the day:)

Shows can often be a mixed bag, hope all is going well - we've been getting a lot of rain here lately not much summer to be found!
