Were you at Woodstock in August, 1969? Were you in the mud? Feeling groovy? Higher than a kite? At peace with the world?
I wasn't. I was getting ready to go to college in southern California.
40 years after the Woodstock Festival, Pat and I made it. Now there
is a beautiful outdoor amplitheater with plenty of bathrooms. Friday night we went to see Peter, Paul and Mary, sans Mary who has major health issues.
We had a great time, the music was mostly songs we remembered from the late 60's, early 70's. Woodstock is now known as Bethel Woods. It's about an hour from home on winding, non-lit back roads. A museum, gift store and restaurant are in this building.
Ok, so I don't have the greatest camera for taking shots from way out! But Paul is standing on the left, Peter is standing on the right. Their voices are getting old but their spirit and energy is still there.
This photo is from Peter, Paul & Mary's website from the concert on Friday. They've got one more concert this summer. Check it out on their website.
Needless to say, not a lot of quilting has gotten done since Friday.
