Here's the first photo from my new camera. Yes, I gave up on the old Nikon and went ahead and bought a new one. Foolishly, perhaps, I bought another one just like the first. (Sometimes I wonder about myself.) Anyway, here's the first photo, taken this morning on Route 66 on the way to Afton. No, the camera doesn't automatically tilt the horizon. I do, when I'm trying to drive, snap a picture, and negotiate a bump in the road at the same time. Sorry.
Further down the road, parked in front of the Holiday Inn in Vinita, I encountered seven huge "Andretti Motorsports" trucks and motor homes, beautiful squeaky clean vehicles, and the largest motor homes I've ever seen! I presume the Andretti team is going to a race somewhere, and I envision the trucks full of gorgeous race cars. If anyone can tell me more about this, let me know.
Further guests came from Leavenworth KS, Commerce OK, Tulsa OK, and Berkshire, England.
Afton had an interesting visitor the other day, when the Barnum and Bailey Circus train rolled through town (but didn't stop). I found this video on YouTube. It's both monotonous and fascinating. Check it out.
I forgot to mention that yesterday was a huge day at Afton Station. Robin and Phil were holding down the fort, and there were visitors from all over the world. Quite different from today, to be sure.
Thanks for including the video of the circus train. Train spotters do not seem to regard monotony in the same way as everyone else and you know, to get to see a Ringling Brothers and Barnum & Bailey Circus train and have a circus performer wave at me, I believe I could become an enthusiastic train spotter myself. What I'd really like to see is one of their "water stops" when they unload the animals between their destination cities and let the animals stretch their legs. To do that, I think would require some train chasing!
Sorry the rest of the visitors did not show up. New cameras are always fun.
