Tastes Of Summer

Summer is on tap for the weekend, starting NOW. We launched up some back roads to cool off just as the evening began to set in. We stopped in Granby for ice coffees and proceeded further, up Amherst way, where their 'Taste Of Amherst' is going on all weekend, on the common.

The weather was perfect for it, and the common was pretty packed with food getterers and music listenerers.

Oh, and many Hula Hooperers.

Kelly found her dish in the Paradise of India; a rice and curry chicken mixture that she raved about, but I found a little too exotic for myself.

My expansive palette craved something more... continental. Like American-continental. Like chicken wings from Amherst's Alpha Pizza, to be specific. The Bloggerette's tastes run somewhere in the middle and she had a bit of both our dishes. Here she is stuffing her face:

A perfectly mild night was settling in by the time we finished eating, and we took one more walkabout before heading back.

It was almost 9:30 now and the band was pumping out fine stick-in-your-head song craft to a receptive crowd relaxing on the grass,

...while the many booths were winding down for the 10 pm closing.

A short visit but a perfect destination for our evening drive. Now, time to head back and turn in early.

A beach visit is in order for the morning...

Oh no! We were there at the same time and we MISSED you. We also got the Indian food. Great pics.

Ah, I always keep an eye out for blogger encounters when we're up there, too.
