Batteries Not Included
Spinner treated me to dinner at the San Diego County Fair last night. The artery clogging menu included courses deep-fried zucchini spears, Australian-style batter fried potatoes, and a foot-long hot dog on a stick. We saw no deep-fried twinkies, last year’s delicacy of choice, and a quest for chocolate covered bacon (recommended by the Sparklett’s man) was unsuccessful. If someone has managed to merge the two flavors-above-all, we couldn’t find him.
My camera died early for want of charged batteries, hence the lack of pixels in this post, but I couldn’t have done the sunset justice anyways. We were a hundred or so feet above the ground on top of the ferris wheel, watching the sun set over the dog beach in Del Mar as all the lights of the fair started to pop on. If my camera had been charged I would’ve offered the operator a fortune to stay up there for half an hour or so, but had to settle for a few short minutes and commit it all to memory. Wonderful.
We also did the roller coaster and the sky way over the fair, and took in a lot of the exhibitions and vendors. Too much shopping and too much walking, but certainly a great night.
