What a wonderful weekend of storytelling, art, fine crafts, and music. Howard Street and School Road were alive with activity as the Ocrafolk Festival participants enthralled us with their talents.
But the best part of the weekend was that Lou Ann arrived on Friday. She barely set her bags down before I took her to the pot luck dinner and auction. The next day she put together a presentation by local children on island history. I didn't get to see it, but it sure sounded like fun (it was island history presented through interpretive dance!).
We've been happily busy ever since -- visiting with my brother who came for the weekend, and with friends of Lou Ann from the Midwest, going out to dinner with Donald Davis' storytellers, and just sitting on the porch swing in the late afternoon enjoying the sunset (this may account for the lapse in a couple of journal entries recently).
Look for us both at the Village Craftsmen or around the corner at our house. Welcome back to the island, Lou Ann. It's so good to have you here.
