I Can't Believe I Forgot My Camera!

The Bede Sisters went to the Lake Lure Arts and Crafts Festival this weekend and I forgot my camera! Lori and I, along with our "sherpas" (our husbands) went to North Carolina to participate in the arts and crafts festival across from the beach at Lake Lure. We camped in nearby Rutherfordton, NC.

We arrived Friday night to rainy weather. I lay awake much of the night, listening to the rain pouring on the roof of the camper, glad we hadn't set up already. When we arrived Saturday morning, the rain had mostly stopped, but the temperature had dropped. It was damp and cold all day, but a surprising number of shoppers came out for a visit.

On Sunday morning, we returned to find our canopy right where we left it but inside our tables were a mess. Hmmmm, we wondered, had an animal gotten in? About then, a fellow crafter came over to explain. Our tent had ended up in the fountain and some wonderful folks, (who were experienced enough to have sturdy anchors on their canopies) had already put ours back in place. Turns out, ours was one of at least eight booths which had flipped during the night. Our product was safe, thanks to Lori. Before leaving on Friday, she had said, "Let's pack up our product in case anything happens during the night." Whew!

Sunday was sunny, cold and windy. Our guys anchored our tent to a light pole, a bowling ball and a cooler. We were good for the day and arrived home safely to the first freeze of the year. Glad to be home, snuggled in our own beds.

So, how was your weekend?

    It sure would have been nice to see some pics, glad it didn't rain the whole time. Would love to do an outdoor show one day.
