Pirate Weekend 2017

Pirate Weekend 2017

It is Pirate Weekend 2017.  Bedraces, Kazoo Band, and general scallywaggin’ fun.  I love Pirate Weekend.  Granted, last year’s had a dark spot when my daughter Jennifer broke her ankle.

This year was without incident and I met some great people.  I met a couple from Utah, here as tourist, who entered the 5K run this morning.  That’s cool.

We had two entries in the bed races.  Only two.  I wish there were a dozen.  The bed races are awesome and entertaining.  They are what a small town is all about.  We need more teams in 2018.

Kind of Funny

It was kind of funny.  This guy was trying to sell fox pelts to the sisters at $40 each.  Yeah… “Hey mom and dad… I’m sending home a fox pelt.”  Nope, that’s not what missionaries use their money for.

Someone Trying to Sell Fox Pelts to the Sister Missionaries


I’m pleased with this picture of Tony.  It was shot with my new 35mm f2 lens and the detail and bokeh are very nice.  I’m going to love this lens.

One of Two Teams

This is one of the two teams.  As a result of only having two teams, they had three heats.  The team winning two heats won the grand prize.  Therefore, maximum heats is three, and maybe only two.   Consequently team 1 won, and then team 2 won.   That meant there was a 3rd heat.

Bed Race 2018

I had an afternoon photo session, so I spent the afternoon and evening working on that.
