Todays Thursday Theme is mailbox,
and these are mailboxes in Liberty, NY.
I only have a couple of mailbox pictures (may have used this one before) as we generally don't have them here in the UK - but here its my handy link to some more pics from my US trip in August...
because one reason for being in the Catskills that weekend was the hippiefest concert at Bethel.
(oh and its so so lovely to be looking at these hot hot sunny summer photos as the weather changes here in England. dragon-breath for the first time this morning...)
Ched had been to hippiefest before and knew what to expect, so I guess didn't need advice - knowing to be prepared with blankets to sit on, warmer layers for the evening [when there was a little bit of a chill, after a spectacularly beautiful day of sunshine] and a LARGE bag of popcorn.
Steve and I, however, both received some interesting and entertainingly cross-generational advice.
Steve's advice, from his father:
"make sure you visit the Bethel (Sixties/woodstock) museum"
My advice, from my daughter:
"Don't smoke weed, mum. Eat it in a cake."
It was a perfect evening, amazingly clear air and colours up there in the mountains, with a groovy atmosphere and crowd of all ages.
Oh, and the music was GREAT.
More on the music here, with other associated psychadelica.
Some sat their way through it all
some got up and danced
these guys scarcely moved a muscle the whole evening, even when hit directly by various airborne missiles (beach balls, toilet rolls...)
Ched took some great people pictures.
The setting sun cast long long shadows ...
... before we wended (went?) our way homewards in darkness.
