July Party Weekend

On July 5th, we headed down to VA for the Solstice Party (yes, late) followed by a benefit concert by The Bitter Liberals.  We once again camped out at Coal Stove Sink.  It was four of us in the guest house this time as my daughter her friend rolled out sleeping bags on the floor.  As usual, we had all we needed: comfy bed, air conditioning, bathroom.

We brought along our dog, Gracie (pictured left).  She chased the peacock and the chickens.  Mostly, she wanted to play with them, but they would have none of that.  She did run around with the other dogs and didn’t even get lost in the dark of the very late Solstice evening.

Speaking of late nights, mine was spurred on by a Corpse Reviver #2 or two, provided by the host.  I highly recommend them, but maybe before 3 a.m.

The next morning, I slept in, had a nibble of breakfast and then took a dip in the river with the dog and the kids. I wish I had a picture of the dog paddling in the river.  She was hilarious.

After some cleaning up, some lunch and a nap, we headed to another farm for a Bitter Liberals concert.  Two sets of fabulous music later, we headed back to CSS for a much-needed good night’s rest.

The next morning, we had a leisurely breakfast with eggs, bacon, and toast.    We had to depart shortly thereafter to make the long trek back to Philadelphia.  It was a great way to spend a weekend, a much needed respite from the hustle and bustle of our sometimes crazy life.
