Wandering 181

Yesterday, Erika and I were at the Annual Oakland Black Cowboy Parade and Festival. She had mentioned it earlier in the week and I asked if I could come with her. We had so much fun! The parade was very informal that we were able to get close and take photographs as much as we wanted. Everyone was warm and friendly and I felt a real sense of community among them.
