in a stroke of radio-ticket-give-away luck, dan and i won passes to the saturday festy.
we purchased a pass for tashi (tristan was free) and on a cool, rainy, gray saturday,
we headed toward some inner sunshine. destination: one hour south.
i loved how contained it was, so family friendly and manageable.
the all day fire pit was a great feature.
two stages, music switching between them, great stuff throughout.
one of my favorites was the shook twins.
tristan was inspired by the wall climbers.
and gave it a try himself. several times over.
such a stunning setting, the blue ridge mountains.
paper bird on the southern stage was magical.
i was way in the back hanging out with tristan among the refurbished pallets,
and then in the kids area, but the sound was great everywhere.
tristan was having fun, but put on his sad face as soon as i aimed the camera at him.
next up on the main stage, anders osborne.
twilight set in while i waited for my harvest wrap from the South Fork Food Truck.
it sure was tasty.
and then the infamous string dusters kicked in and tashi and i hula hooped for hours.
hula hooping with one's teenage daughter is a peak parenting experience, i must say.
we drove home in the dark, damp night, the light inside a little brighter.
