Goblins and Hoblins and Witches…oh my!!!

Halloween is a BIG DAY on the Island….this morning we headed downtown for the very special extravaganza.  Every year on Halloween eve morning come herds of preschoolers and their parents or sitters.  They have come to trick or treat all the shop owners who are often also in costume.  It is a delight.  We went by one two story brick building and the owners had lowered a rope with goodies in it for the kids.  Everyone has a great time…you can see that from this little unicorn's delightful smile.  We love it. Another of our Island traditions we try not to miss…  My little red camera was busy, as I asked Moms and Dads if I could photograph. They all agreed and each child obliged with a smile, 
it was a treat for the heart!

                             Even the littlest are arrayed, along with a pirate sibling too tired to walk.

                  Another precious Halloween moment as Wonder Child and her veggy buddy
                                                      reach for fallen goodies..

   As I said, shop owners get into it, like this fantastic clown.  
Note the blue skies today, it would dare rain.

Now, we have come to the end of our tale…
what was your Halloween eve like?
