Festivals and Photos – Travelogue

We love to travel and play in different places with different folk. Road trips are our kinda fun – Chris likes to drive and Jen likes to take photographs.

We’ve been very lucky over the last few months to be able to travel to some fantastic places, we live in a beautiful place and appreciate it all the more when we return after a road trip!

It’s a real challenge to get a good photograph from a moving vehicle and very satisfying when it works well.

It’s lovely to live in a beautiful place – very inspiring, going away often inspires us to experience our area at home with fresh eyes.

Despite some incredibly wild, wet and windy weather – we endured…..

Thanks to Lisa Martin for recording us on Sunday, in the wild windy tent! Jen was very ill all weekend with the flu but we endured! This is our version of the Ola Belle Reed song – I’ve Endured, which was inspired by South Australia’s own Cherry Pickers version of the same.

It’s always a pleasure to jam with great musicians and Wirrina was no exception.

As usual the most intrepid Ian Fisk was there documenting both festivals. He has become a stalwart presence at most events.
