At the EX 2014

Bill and I rode our bicycles to the Canadian National Exhition this weekend.
 Ever since we were kids we have loved the Princes' Gates. Today we learned the gates are not named after a Princess. They were opened in 1927 by Prince Edward (later Edward VIII) and Prince George.
This is what the walk from the Gates to the midway looks like now. 
We paused for a truly CNE experience --
a performance by The Flying Wallendas. 
I resisted Bill's invitation to try the Sky Ride. Didn't want to be stuck in the sun.
The Midway at the EX is an excellent place to take pictures of people, who are helpfully distracted by the games and the rest of the visual chaos. 
We'll leave you with the famous CNE food stalls. 
Treats like this don't grow on trees, folks. 


  1. Love the lively loud colours and people flying through the air! The last hurrah of summer liberation.

  2. Thanks, Shelley. It's a grand old tradition.
