Macon, The Finale

You know that I had a good time in Macon and that there was lots to do when it takes more than a week to tell you all about a two-day vacation!  Now, it's time to wind up the travelogue.

If you go around to the back of the The Big House Museum, past the Hippies sign....


.....and past the signpost.....

I live near Red Rocks, sort of.... I was a long way from home!
.... to the sprawling lawn, there is a bandstand/gazebo for live music...


This picture, above, was taken in the afternoon.  Preparations were being made for that evening's show, featuring one of my favorite groups, Delta Moon, from Atlanta.


The show was phenomenal.  The band played for over 3 hours and sitting in a lawn chair, relaxing on a warm southern night, listening to the music was close to perfection.  My only complaint is that the time passed by much too quickly. 

Left to Right:  Mark Johnson, Tom Gray, Darren Stanley and Franher Joseph
When the show was over it was dark.  The Museum was bathed in light and looked very impressive.


A postscript for knitters:  here is a picture of Butch Trucks' drumsticks.  Check out the drum stick wrapped with yarn on the left (green arrow).  See, music and knitting DO mix!

My husband was a percussionist and his mallets (marimba) were all wrapped like that. He is quite handy with a needle.

Sounds like you had a wonderful time. Love the Red Rocks sign--that's pretty cool!
