“Tulip Festival! Buy your tickets online to guarantee entry!”
And every year, I’d drive down the highway, attempting to spot the fields from a distance, to gauge if the visit would be worth it.
But I never did spot the fields. So I never did go.
However, this year I wanted to make the effort.
But I did not buy the tickets online. I took a gamble, and just went there after an appointment.
And I got in!
Kinda like on the beaches in Hawaii.
Yep, lots and lots of people.
However if you were selective with your camera angle, you could still capture some pretty outstanding views.
As long as you didn’t look down. The media did warn you bang on… ‘Wear your boots, as this is a working farm.’
It was rather humorous seeing these gorgeous silky dresses flowing in the breeze between the flowers… along with their blue plastic bootie things full of mud over top nice shoes.
But we know it’s all about the selective capture.
And yes, the effort was indeed worth it.
I still want to go there. Probably by myself. Do you think it’s safe for a sole girl traveller in that region? Michael, what do you think? And where is your Ireland post? Cannot find… I’d love to link to it!
But next time, I may try the booties. Heavy snow boots (it’s all I have) on a hot day proved interesting…
Do you have a tulip festival in your area?
For a few other neat local sights in my area…
Multiple trips to the infamous Granny and Grumpa’s Antiques… BARNS of junk!
Now I want to get out more!
