Fried Pickles



The lady in the blue shirt is a real person. Chocolate bacon, fried pickles… not for me. Funnel cake was my favorite at the North Carolina State Fair that closed yesterday. I’m glad we went on Wednesday and did not leave it for the last day. Boris got the flu during the weekend. Happily he is fine now and ready for school tomorrow.

    Ellie, you’re ahead of me today for a Ruby Tuesday post! Good for you! The REDs (and all the other colors) are beautiful! It could be Coney Island in Brooklyn, N.Y. My RT post will be up in an hour or two… 🙂

    There is nothing like the state fair to challenge your eating habits and expand your waist line. Great photos. Looks like the weather cooperated with that clear blue sky. Plenty of red at the fair. Happy Ruby Tuesday.

    Stunning colors. Sounds like fun – chocolate bacon, friend pickles NOT I thought fried oreos and cheesecake were bad enough!

    The beautiful sky showcases the sights and smalls of the fair. Fried food of all varieties attract the senses, and the great number of ‘prizes’ t be won make us want to play – a lot!. What a fun place to spend a day (or days?)

    Bright, happy, fun and colorful! I love all your photos, Ellie! The fair looks and sounds fantastic! My tongue’s curling at the thought of chocolate bacon but I think I’d be willing to try the fried pickles. 😉

    Fried pickles not for me either, Ellie. I like the last shot. An alien in a sea of stuffed toys.

  21. Stephanie V Says:

    Fried pickles…could be good. Not too sure about chocolate bacon. The fun is for sure, though. Lots of lovely reds and those other bright colors. Nothing like a fair!

  22. Raven Says:

    What wonderful color! Looks like a fun time. I happened to watch Oprah yesterday as she visited the State Fair in Texas. That looked like fun too.

  23. storyteller at Small Reflections Says:

    Hugs and blessings,
