Wellington Lake Festival 2008 - August 6-10

It probably wasn't as wet as "Duckfest" of several years back but very rainy and cold everyday. Saturday seemed to improve until the deluge hit about five o'clock and put a damper on Stone Soup for all but a few and cancelled the main event. Harry, Diana and I did enjoy a few workshops and an orienteering course, however. Noel got a new 22in drum but never got to use it. Inspiration Circle Friday was excellent, lead by Trevor, and gave us an insight into aspects of China (he and Molly had returned from China three days before). It was the trial run for our new trailer and it was great. Lot's of changes to the inside needed for organization but keep us three dry when we didn't try to get about. It pulled OK but had hoped for more than the 15mpg we got on the trip. Still more comfortable and twice the mpg of the old van. Will we return next year? Hmmmm . . .
