Trying to Play Catch-up

Okay, so Baconfest came and went and I didn't do a post. My batteries ran out in my camera and because the event got so large this year (over 50 attendees and 34 submissions) it was held outdoors and my camera phone couldn't get good pictures in the twilight and dark. :-(

So this weekend we made a fast run up to NY to see my sister, P, and to eat spiedies and doughnuts (of course). We also hiked Watkins Glen and I'll have great pictures to share after I get through grading 105 essays and 420 IDs from the exam I gave last week. *sigh* You can run away for the weekend but all that work will be waiting for you when you return. Hey, what do you think of this pic? I took it in Watkins Glen. It had been misting and raining for the early morning but cleared up while we were hiking. I thought the water and colors were so vibrant!

Actually, we must have been in a warm pocket. While temps dipped to 35 or thereabouts everyplace else, where we were only got as low as 41 and I believe it was 46 when we got up at 6 a.m. to begin packing up. We stayed nice and warm.

OL, Baconfest was great, with even more elaborate recipes such as Bacon Baklava and this year's first ever bacon sculpture dish - Baconhenge made to look like Stonehenge. This was not the year to have the camera go on the blink. Oh well. *sigh*
