We hope everyone had a wonderful 4th of July.
George and I traded our Thursday day off, so that we could celebrate today.
The local town of Cloverdale had 'Clover Days', and we wanted to be a part of it!
It started out with a pancake breakfast at the local high school.
We had pancakes, sausage, scrambled eggs, and OJ or coffee for $7.
Not a bad price, and the food was good!
We walked down to the main drag (Hwy 101!),
where there were vendors set up ready for the day.
We were afraid there may not be enough parking for our big truck,
so we had left it up at the high school.
When we got down to where the vendors were, we found there was a great spot..
to watch a parade :-)
George went back up and brought the truck down.
He parked it so that we could sit on the tailgate.
People started finding a spot to sit on the side of the road.
The parade began at about 11 am..
Led by Clover the cow!
Of course there were fire engines, cheerleaders, and flatbed trucks with hay as floats..
and even a few horses..
all in all the parade took about 30 minutes :-)
But the thing that cracked us up the most was the fact
that this parade was on the northbound side of Highway 101.
That meant that traffic had to sit and wait and take turns going on the southbound side..
There were a lot of confused looks from travelers,
when they realized they were in a parade!
It was a fun day..
tomorrow back to work,
and Mom & Dad are here!
