Sunday we went to the Marin County Fair — which Porter kept calling “the Circus” — and he had definite plans on what he wanted to do. 1. Trains, 2. Ferris Wheel, 3. Bumper Cars. He told us this plan over and over again. T.J. and his family were going to join us at the fair but sadly he got sick the night before and they weren’t able to come. But we managed to have a good time though Porter was initially unhappy that T.J. wasn’t coming.

The big ferris wheel. Porter kept talking about it since he saw it the week before the fair opened. But he never did go on it.

Porter reluctantly wore his hat.
Alice wore hers, too.

Porter showing how trains couple in front of a display for SMART, the proposed Sonoma-Marin Area Rail Transit. It’s a 75-mile rail line that would link Cloverdale and the Larkspur Landing ferry terminal with fourteen stations in between, primarily for commuters. It would be great for Sarah’s commute. It certainly sounds like a terrific idea so undoubtedly for that reason it’s probably doomed to failure.
