I am genuinely exhausted. I was the last one standing after the party, finally got to bed at about 3.40 am. After everyone had left or gone to bed in tent or campervan. Sadie the German Shepherd and I sat quietly beside the dying embers of the campfire for a while. Sadie was emotional so I hugged her, and dried her tears. Then she did the same for me.
It was a great party. It could not have been better. Everything I hoped for and more. I did my best to mingle around everybody. Mingling at parties is so much easier when everyone there is a friend.
So much lovely music from so many talented performers. It went on all night and when the microphones and speakers were turned off, we all gathered round the fire playing acoustic guitar and singing. Everyone was so happy.
The weather! This being an outdoor event at night it was a worry but the good Lord answered all my prayers. It was a perfect evening and night, bearing in mind the amount of rainfall we have had here lately. But for my party the clouds disappeared. It was a clear starry and moonlit sky, and the temperature was just right. If anyone did feel a chill as the night went on the big campfire did a great job at warming them, and no wind made sure that the smoke went straight up and didn't disturb us at all. Truly a perfect night for a party.
Here are some photos of the event. I am sorry they are not in order. But I am too tired to sort them out tonight. I hope to have a video of the event soon, to give you more of the feel of the atmosphere.
Now if you will excuse me, I must away to my bed. I am so tired. Which is not surprising really because, I'm 65 you know, and us oldies tire quite easily.
