i totally forgot to mention the moongazy gathering in the time we have been home
it was, as ever, a glorious weekend.
swampy and i arrived on the Wednesday to set up ourselves and mark out there the electric hook-up points where.
the journey up was lovely, but once we were parked up and needed to get our awing up it started to rain...and rain hard...for about two hours.
the trouble was that we had the ferrets in their big holiday home, wood, electric cool box, cauldron, guitar, banjo and bodhran, plus flynt all squeezed into the back of the camper.
we could do nothing until the awning was up and the ferrets placed inside it, the wood taken out and the instruments placed carefully in the cab of the camper.
it was a bit of a nightmare and poor swampy became soaked...luckily we could plug into the electric and dry his clothes out over our little convector heater.
but from this point the weather was lovely.
it was great to meet up with friends old and new, some who we only see once a year.
in the evenings we sat around a big bonfire and had the pleasure of listening to our 'house' band play accompanied by assorted bodhrans and djembes.
it really was special.
the solstice café all set up with free tea, coffee, biscuits and cake~everyone is always very generous when baking and buying.
flynt met some new friends...this is either rolf or sparky!
another special t-shirt from kit :)
at sunset we started to gather for music and laughter
