Tink and I didn't think we'd make it to the OC Fair. Her due date was July 17th and we'd both just resigned ourselves to go to Del Mar instead. After she passed her due date we looked for places to go to walk around. So on Wednesday the 21st sometime around 6pm we headed out for an evening at the fair. Just getting there was a challenge. They had a concert going, and it seemed like every parking lot was full and closed. They were directing people in all different directions... I REALLY began to appreciate Disneyland style parking! What a nightmare, but we eventually parked, bought tickets, and walked in.
As hungry as we were we wanted to see a few things first. Someone on here could likely tell me "yes' or "no" but I swear this is the old truck that sat at Jungle's exit.
There were no signs... so if anyone knows please do tell.
Hey Tink's been craving ice this whole pregnancy, so why not.
It's a nice 15-20 degrees inside the museum so they hand out parka blankets for everyone. One of the girls didn't want to wear her's. The attendant told her to just hold it. When she walked in the door there was a scramble to get her jacket on. "Dad it's freezing" was all I heard as I saw a blur of green.
Tink complaining about the cold.
These two took off ahead while their sister struggled with her jacket.
The setup in the ice box was a giant U... with the statues on your left as you walked in and more stuff on your right as you left.
Easter Island statue
That's the older two with a Chinese Lion next to them (close up in the next shot).
I believe this was Michael... I know it was one of the angels.
I know there is a fine line with art vs nudity but you can't see anything here... They did have the famous "Venus" statue that is a nude torso. I purposely did not include that one in this TR.
I wish the detail had come out better... this is a 5ft long Chinese Dragon.
I just love the ceiling arches
The Mona Lisa
So cold his glasses fogged up!
