We have been travelling for a week strait it seems. Gone from Virginia to Florida and back up to Georgia. Today is my Birthday and I think I may take the day completely OFF. That is RARE for me, because I have to be doing something, making something, or woking on the computer. SO with that said, I will get the business out of the way and be OFF!!!
The Drums of Painted Mountain pow wow was really nice for a first time pow wow. The pictures and video are all up and posted, please see the photo albums at my Flickr here: http://www.flickr.com/photos/spiderwrulf/sets/ and the video are on Youtube here: http://www.youtube.com/spiderwrulf
Three days of Travel and about 700 miles took us into the Florida panhandle for pow wow in Sopchoppy. This was a pow wow that has been around for a while and the grounds are VERY nice. Plenty of camper hook-ups, on the river, fishing, swimming, out in the middle of Florida's Best. Unfortunately we had rain shower on Saturday that drove the people that were there, home early. The dancers had a Great time though, dancing until 10pm! I have only a few pictures of some mens dance to post later. I was rather sick with a bug while there and Ken had to run the shop most of the time.
It was amazing to watch the colorrun out as we travelled south. There were so many wildflowers in Virginia and Carolina and as we got to Georgia and Florida there were on a sparse few. This pretty little Orb Weaver was in NC at our first stopover. We are now in Georgia, getting ready for a Great Veteran Pow wow in Euharlee.
