The Swansboro Market


My premonition was correct.  The Swansboro Market turned out to be a small crafts fair.  I saw one cucumber on display. That was it for vegetables.

There were some nice things there, but it was August hot and even that close to the water there was no breeze, so I did not last long.  Even my wife was ready to head back the car after a quick stroll through the Market.

The only person who had the right idea was the lady who was weaving baskets while sitting with her feet in a pail of water.  She looked the coolest of the group.

I am not a big crafts person even in the winter,  so a craft market when the mercury is above 90 is not going to hold my attention long..  At least I could flee across the street to some of Swansboro's air conditioned shops.
