Aloha to the Stawberry Festival


Saturday brought sunshine and strawberries to Savage, Maryland!

I popped into the church for its bake sale ... oh, my, this beach cake looks delicious!

Here's an aerial view of the beach with teddy grams floating in livesavers!


These cupcakes would brighten any day ...

... the octopus is ready for summer ... 

... rainbows over chocolate!

Over on the town green, Troop 97 offered snow cones ... 

... the Maryland Chapter of the Marine Corps Association sold grilled sausages!  Semper Fidelis!

This lovely ballerina demonstrated her skills ...

... and promoted her school.

Baltimore's own hero, Commodor Joshua Barney, made a guest appearance.

From the Navy History website (link),

Joshua Barney was born in Baltimore, Maryland, on 6 July 1759, and died in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, 1 December 1818, having served with distinction in the Navy during both the Revolution and the War of 1812.

Several ships have been named after Joshua Barney, among them a torpedo boat built in 1900; a destroyer launched 5 Sep 1918; and a guided missile destroyer launched 10 Dec 1960.

I  had to look twice at the animal on a leash - a lamb! According to her owner, the lamb was orphaned and the family accepted her as their pet. They still bottle feed her ... and she followed the human mother around as is she were her animal mother!

Do you like strawberries?  Cupcakes?  Snow cones?
