It soon became obvious that we were not alone - the glorious Spring weather drew the crowds outdoors.
They even parked on the athletics field. How rude.
Our next-door neighbour is the local girls' high school and they picked the most brilliant day to hold their annual fair.
There was a carnival atmosphere, with market stalls,
lots of food to keep the hungry crowds satisfied,
and cool jazz.
We even bumped into the grandchildren.
The students' art exhibition was wonderful.
It's amazing what some people consider worth putting out with the trash. I'm sure this adorable little fellow hasn't passed his use-by date.
The shade was appreciated by the visitors.
But the young folk preferred the rides.
All in all, not bad neighbours.
