Home again and back to earth after a great English Ale in the Adelaide Hills. Thanks all round to Hedgemonkey Morris and Hot For Joe for their hospitality, to Bron for her brilliant organisation of the weekend and to everyone who came along;
It looked to be a promising weekend when Friday evening's venue, the Wheatsheaf hotel, had Mountain Goat Surefoot on tap.
Saturday morning was spent enjoying the idyllic Bridgewater pub garden. Lots of dancing was had, including mixed sets with South East North West and former Adelaide Lancashire Witches, a double set of Bunch of Fives with Longford and then a triple set of Greywell Tunnel for all who were able.
A short trip around the hills to Mylor and the dancing continued with Dani's Bakewell Tart having its first outing here in a tent raised specially for us, outside the main event hall.
Our performance of Ducks in the Privy went down brilliantly. Clogs on a timber floor always seem to bring our knees up higher and sharper.
Sunday afternoon continued in the same fashion til most of us leapt aboard a bus for the airport, grinning from ear to ear at the avenue of hankies we received from Hedgemonkey as we boarded the bus.
Thanks to all who made it a great weekend, especially Christian for joining us in Saturday night's processional on melodeon.
