Rachael and I were up before most of the people in the house so we went to Hidalgo and did some photographing of the grain elevator (in service into the 1980s) and the abandoned store across the street. It looks like the merchandise is just sitting there, from the late 1950s. We really wanted to get in, but being law abiding citizens did not break in.

We stopped at the Candy Kitchen for lunch. It is a vintage hamburger, ice cream and fudge shop. Delicious! It reminds one of Leopold’s in Savannah.

At the fair, it was an afternoon of harness racing. And hanging out with Grandad, who works in the grandstand.

On the way home, we stopped by the covered bridge. Duncan re-enacted “Bridges of Madison County.”
