Thanks for popping in.
Had an absolutely radio rental day at the festival yesterday, watching some epic musicians, and culminating in a headbanging session to Muse on the Pyramid Stage last thing.
So we decided to kick back today and give the mud and chaos a miss. There's only so much of that noise and crowd level a sane and sober person can take!!
Walked across the fields into Glastonbury to clear the heads. Happened upon a magical underground spring quite by chance, called the White Spring, where we lit a candle and said a prayer.
Had a late lunch at Knights, a 5th generation family run fish n chip shop. Best fish n chips I have eaten in years! And then headed for Glastonbury Abbey, a huge old relic of what was once clearly a very important place. Apparently King Arthur and Lady Guinevere were buried there, but were also dug up and relocated. So no bones, just the plaque where they should have been laid to rest.
Sat in the grounds, and watched the young children playing hide and seek in the gardens. Ah the innocence!
Walked back to the campsite in the mid summer's evening, and am very happy to have avoided the festival noise for a day. Happy to be going back in for another pounding of the senses tomorrow, but today was just the ticket.
Actually, I have really enjoyed the crafty intermezzos at the show too! The first day, I made a basket, and yesterday Dave and I whittled spoons!
The internet is a bit iffy here, but I will see if I can show you the basket being born....
Amazing what we humans can make with our hands, with a little guidance and the right materials.
The spoons? Well, they will take a bit more practice and time. But it's ok!! we bought the knives to try at home! Yep, we got the starter kit!!!
I look forward to making spoons and giving them to friends....
Love, peace and happiness,
