SATURDAY - MUSIC AND DUST

 A WILD AND WOOLLY WEEKEND, i had no real plans and at the last minute decided to drive to Lake Culluleraine an hour away to join friends at the annual lakeside music festival.



I drove down in beautiful sunshine surrounded by amazing Mallee skies






















THE MUSIC FESTIVAL is located right on the lake's edge, vast stretches of lawn and beautiful trees, a small town of mobile homes and campers with food and drink tents and two stages.
I arrived around 4.30,
as i drove west watching the grey skies
approaching and rain falling a long way off.







Once the wind whipped up we got about an hour of dust before the rain arrived, a short burst which had everyone running for shelter.  the Fossey's Gin tent just happened to be nearby :0)


not the fossey's tent :0)   good old steve was providing
great gin and tonics all weekend
the sky just kept changing until dark, even after dark - the moon was up









So we listened to various bands till late, i headed off to my swag around 10.30 and spent a sleepless cold night listening to the wind and wishing i'd brought more bedding :0(  







I headed home early sunday and drove through dust storms all the way. intended to garden but it was too dirty and windy so i huddled instead, hand sewing and TV :0) + junk food and wine after a hot bath.  maybe i'll do the gardening today, it's still windy but blue skies and a sunny day
