GRASSROOTS Festival of Music and Dance, Trumansburg, NY
Grassroots was a blast, late nights, great music, lots of support:
(you'll be happy to know I still had to pay him!)
There were periodic rainstorms throughout the weekend, but thanks to my good friends Paul and Maria of Asia Luna I had an extra roof on my tent which meant we stayed dry:
These girls did not:
Coming home we found a giant turtle, and had to stop and take photos (obviously!):
FALCON RIDGE FOLK Festival of Music and Dance, Hillsdale, NY
Although Falcon Ridge began with much rain, the majority of the weekend was nice and sunny:
Until it wasn't!
The sky was ominous! This is the last we saw before we zipped up and buckled down (and then it proceeded to pelt us with quarter-sized hail and huge gusts of wind):
We held on tight (this funny photo really doesn't convey the violence of the wind, because we didn't have time to take photos when we were all hanging on for dear life!):
And despite some serious flooding (and seriously white thighs, sorry):
We managed to to escape yet again without a leak from the top!:
Others were not so fortunate:
For some it was no matter. This is sort of how I was feeling, even though everyone expected me to be really upset:
It was an eventful summer, and I have to thank Amanda again for taking so many photos, for all the hours spent working on tedious tasks (like tying bows and gluing boxes) and for always being there for me when I was stressing out, or when I was overjoyed.
