Parade Day & Travel

I'm not rushed this morning because my flight isn't until this afternoon, so I walked to the Wigwam for breakfast. As I was leaving to walk home, the formation for today's Fernley 4th of July parade was starting. I'd already parked the Astro behind my house to keep it out of the traffic for the parade. As it happened, Amtrak was running a little late and gave me a nice photo opportunity as some of the floats started moving into position on Front Street in front of the house.

Trains and Floats

Big R's float rolls east down into position as Amtrak heads for Reno westbound.

The parade should already be gone by the time I need to leave for Denver. Lisa isn't going this year, and will take me to the airport in a couple of hours. I'll see some of you this weekend at Westercon.
