Yipee! We just got back from the lovely Strawberry Music Festival. We obviously love Burning Man, and Strawberry is a very different vibe, but I guess that's why I enjoy it so much. It's smaller, about acoustic music, much of it pretty awesome bluegrass, and is THE most kid-friendly festival you could imagine in the most green beautiful nature. Because of it's smallness and focus on music & family, everyone is super friendly, low-key, and happy. Everyone smiles, comments on Tesla, shares what they have, etc.
Our first year, we parked our RV next to Jim & Joyce. Since then, we've always gone back to the same spot to hang out with them. It's like a reunion when we park in our spot. This year, their son and girlfriend came along too, and we had a lovely pasta dinner with them.
What is super fun for Tesla, and for us to watch and participate in, are all the fun kid & adult activities. Art galore, splashing in the lake (there is a large lake for teens and adults to swim and float around on boats, and smaller enclave for little ones with lots of sand for building castles and getting dirty), workshops, yoga, music lessons, ad hoc music by people jamming in their camps, and on and on.
Here are all the pics.
