As promised, I will be posting more pictures from the Great Oregon Steam-Up that I attended over the weekend. Please see yesterday's post for Part One.
There was quite a turnout on Saturday in Salem, Oregon despite the heat. Hubby and I got a good workout thanks to the sheer size of Antique Powerland. There were so many fascinating things to see.
Below are some pictures of the small-scale steam machines and equipment that were there.
And a steam powered ice cream maker:
Along with the steam machines, they also showcased antique cars and trucks, an authentic trolley, and a super cool 1930's service station:
And a favorite - we got to see Blacksmiths in action:
At the end they had a parade. Here are a few more of the larger steam vehicles:
It really was a lot of fun! If you missed it, you can still check it out this coming Saturday and Sunday. For more information, go Here. Tomorrow will be my third and final day of posting about the Great Oregon Steam-Up - hope you will stop by!
Also, it being Wednesday, it's time for my mid-week check in for ROW80, otherwise known as A Round of Words in 80 Days. For more information on ROW80, be sure to click Here
Since I didn't do a lick of work over the weekend(and I don't feel guilty about it either), I can only account for Monday and Tuesday, where I did hit my goals. I edited 6 pages of my novel and a few pages of my novella. I am doing a final polish on my steampunk horror short story, and am still adding words to my steampunk zombie novel.
And despite all the internal dialogue that happens in the morning right before I workout, I did indeed workout both days. I really do wish I'd wake up all pumped and motivated to exercise, but I don't. Still...I acknowledge it's good for me and it's why I do it.
I'll be checking in with ROW80ers during the week to catch up on their progress reports :)
