We danced till we were giddy!
Sunday afternoon, friends and I took in the 7th annual LaHave River Folk Festival. Fort Point was the sight of one of the first settlements in N America -- once the French snapped it up from the Mi'kmaq, of course. It also happens to be a favorite spot of mine as it's around the corner from where we raised our kiddies; we loved walking from our house and along the beach to Fort Point -- collecting beach glass, running with the dog, picnic lunches. The Historical Society have worked hard in restoring the site.
The afternoon meant more music and hand clapping and hot dogs and root beer and chilli. And then the dancing began -- a person can only sit still for so long! There were big dancers and little dancers, old ones and young ones: I love seeing every age group up dancing together and being totally "uncool".
A lineup of 13 different performers, the smell of b'beque in the air and happy, toe-tapping people everywhere you looked: some in the open, some under tent canopies and some outside the teepees.
