RV and Greek Fest: St. A.

Interesting combination wouldn’t you say?

We’ll start with the Recreation Vehicle Fair at the Clay County Fair Grounds then move on to some yummy food made by the St. Augustine Greek folks. It’s a bit of a tie for delicious food between the Raleigh, N.C. Greeks and the St. Augustine Greeks, however the Florida Greeks win out with pricing. Keep reading.

Recreational Vehicles came in all shapes and sizes at the show with monsters such as this one which you drive ranging from $130 to $260,000.

Then there were the small trailers which can be pulled or minivans with studio apartments inside. Amazing all the housing variations available in these vehicles.

The interiors hid many ways to add sleeping space with bunks over the drivers seat, under bedding, over closets, and all furniture reclined to accommodate even more sleeping space.

While most of the furniture was dark leather to entice the female population kitchen cabinets were available in cherry, gray, and white with lighting fixtures attractive and unique.

Add-ons included a pull out deck, space for outside televisions, and awnings. The third shot is a spacious storage hull.

So much has changed with this industry. Many of the folks viewing were considering purchase as a home and signs with monthly pricing were attached to most every vehicle. With Florida hurricanes it certainly isn’t a bad idea to take your home with you when the winds start or have a second spot when your home is destroyed. Now, onto the Greeks…

What a perfect weather day for this festival. With tasty gyros, delicious baked goods, and great music, God must have been smiling on the Greeks!

Then there was the wine.. If only it was sold closer to St. Augustine.

And the vendors..

What a nice day to return to. Can’t wait till the 2020 Festival.

Everything Greek!

Recently there was a Greek Festival at the North Carolina State Fairgrounds. If you have never been to one of these, go. It will be pricey but as they say it is “Priceless,” and your stomach will thank you. Caveat: Wear roomy clothes so you can take it all in. Ha!Ha!

Here were some of the selections:

I chose the full dinner with leg of lamb in a tomato sauce, veggies, rice, and grape leaves. Thank God for take out containers to bring food home. What a delicious feast to continue tomorrow.

Served cafeteria style everything was warm and tasty. The line was long but with quick turnover. Next stop was the wine station where I tested one ounce samples of 7 different Greek wines from the homeland. Delicious, however only can get these in Greece. ? Next trip?

From there it was dancing. All ages of Greeks participate and give quite a show.

Then at the conclusion of a busy day time for a vanilla ice cream sundae with granola, honey and chocolate syrup topping. YUM…

So set your calendar for next year’s fest. You’ll be glad you did.
