We got a bit of a late start Tuesday morning, which was further delayed by a genius branch of the county DOT.  They were oiling the roads (the country version of asphalting which involved pouring a hot layer of oil on the roads and then pouring fine chipped gravel over it).  After the late start we headed for Moonshine, Illinois, home of the Moon Burger.  It’s about 20 minutes east of where we were staying and has been featured on NPR and CBS.  They open at 11am and they turn off the grill at 12:30pm sharp.  

After a delicious lunch, we started on the road back to the fair and I shot some pictures of this neat old building in Hazel Dell.

The second day of the fair included harness racing …

and checking out to see what entries won. 

We decided to not stay for the evening events which consisted of the tractor pull with things that aren’t even tractors.  On the way home we stopped at my aunt & uncle’s garden for goodies.

Before settling in for the evening with the cousins and some Olympics, I got some shots of the sunset.
