It was a fun weekend and the weather held. For March way up here, that’s nothing short of a meteorological miracle. Unfortunately, none of the pictures I took at the fashion show came out; the lining of my purse shredded and got all over the lens. Drat! There were some really great gents and ladies in lovely suits and dresses. But I did get some nice shots from the Uptown and Downtown Insider’s Walking Tours. Enjoy!
