I don’t know why it’s so difficult for me to get out to the San Diego County Fair each year. Over 1.5 million people attended last year, making it the fifth largest fair in the United States, surpassed only by the State Fair of Texas, Houston Livestock Show & Rodeo, Minnesota State Fair, and the Los Angeles County Fair. I mention that because I am a native Texan and have been to the two largest ones many times.
I’m used to going to these things and would think that since the San Diego County Fair runs from the second week of June to July 4 each year, it would be pretty easy to put just one day on my schedule! Surprisingly, it’s not that easy. After missing the Fair last year, I made it today! Yahooooooooo!
At this point in my life, I’m not into the games and rides much. I usually spend my time photographing the flowers, the unique gardens, and the animals.
One difference this year is that Jim went with me. I usually have to go by myself because (1) he doesn’t like the sun and heat that is prevalent in June, (2) he doesn’t like the crowds, and (3) he doesn’t like the smell of nature in the pig, chicken, turkey, goat, and cattle pavilions.
He does, however, like the flowers and the gardens. Since I was taking photographs of everything that existed (341 photos and flash videos in three hours), Jim was wandering ahead of me. That’s when he found my favorite vendor at the 2013 San Diego County Fair:
Robert Fremont’s Unique Island Style Decor
Some of my personal favorites:
What attracted Jim to Robert Fremont’s Unique Island Style Decor were some light fixtures. You can see them smack dab in the center of the first picture, the colored spots. He had two different styles, one for $39 and one for $79. I guess you know which style Jim liked.
Yes, we bought one:
I figured that since Jim is closing an escrow in a few days, and I have had a magnificent June in my home inspection business, I’d let him buy the light for his early birthday present (birthday is July 18).
If you need some unique island style decor for your pool, spa, tiki room, garden, or man cave, stop by Robert Fremont’s Unique Island Style Decor at the 2013 San Diego County Fair. It’s in the pavilion with all the spas, the rose competition, the dahlia competition, and the floral design competition. You can’t miss it!
