Family went to the Eden Festival yesterday (Bob was working there but he killed a few hours with his aged Pees before his shift). In the fine tradition of music festivals the weather was unpredictable: the sun almost shone but it rained most of the time, and there was a lot of mud.
I haven't been to a festival since about 1977 and was rather comforted to find the dress code hadn't changed. I felt quite out of place in my jeans and black waxed jacket.
There was fabulous food: Tibetan, Seychellian, Indian, and more.
Here are a few photos, snatched while the rain was off:
A rather Shakespearean procession.
The Fairy King.
This is one of those looks I've always wanted to emulate but never been able to.
I tried on a hat I thought might make me fit in, but it was too big.
Not quite sure what this is all about.
Goat skull with flower eyes.
