Starting the day by waking up to a rolling creek passing by, swollen with water from the previous nights rain got me in a fishing mode, so I did a little morning fishing. The Pockets arose and gathered, preparing for the Summer Concert Series and keeping an eye on the weather. Danny and Allen hiked in the morning up the side of a nearby mountain and got some great shots. They even saw a fox in his or her native foxiness.
Then, of course, you have to run the energy out of the dog, Buddy. The unfortunate truth of the matter is that Buddy is a mountain dog and we are a lowland people. This thin air tires us quicker than him.
We headed into Evergreen and ate some delicious local adaptations of Mexican food at the delectable Rio Del Sol. [ link ] I had the fish tacos and they were very delicious. Muy bien!
After a delicious lunch, we headed off to the Evergreen Lake House to start loading in for the Summer Concert Series show. It's a really gorgeous setting for a concert and we were happy to be back to rock out the residents of Evergreen.
If you watch closely, you'll see the sky start to darken. It had rained earlier in the day and we were hoping to dodge some of the weather. Mother Nature had other plans, however. The concert got a go to stay outside despite threatening weather and all the speakers were covered with plastic. It rained during a portion of the set of the opening band The Hooligans and they had tents set up over them. By the time we hit it had cleared enough to enable the tents to be removed. The tents were eventually re-involved as the rain came back for another taste near the very end of the concert.
We loved rocking out for the Summer Concert series and we hope to come back next year. We hung around afterward for a bit and met some fans, which is always a sweet time. Thanks to everyone who came out and sat through the tumultuous weather to enjoy the rock we laid out. You folks are great and we appreciate it so much. Thanks Evergreen!
Justin and Donny Fineberg rocked the night through with us and even traveled back to their fine casa in the Pocket Rocketeer, where we finished the fantastic night of with some awesome pizza and good times.
