Moab Art Show

We were at the park before they were officially open this morning- believe it or not, this is the same park we were at in April for the car show!

There was live music all day- here's a bluegrass band that started the festivities off. There were painters, photographers, pottery, and my favorite- all the jewelry. We walked through the whole show before I chose a couple of earrings at one place, and a necklace and earrings at a second. Love them both.

There were a couple of fiber artists. One was mostly wool yarn, felting- some nice stuff. This one caught my eye- she dyed a lot of hats, scarves, and sarongs.

Later in the day, we watched a local drumming group, Taiku Dan. They had both students performers, and adult. I thoroughly enjoyed them.

And, as you can see, the young boy in front of the stage, felt the same as me. He played along with them with his own set of sticks!

After we left the art show, we went and had a late lunch/early dinner at the Moab Brewery. When we came out, the sky was an incredible shade of dark indigo. It was awesome against the red rocks!

We headed home, and watched it roll in against the rim. We saw some incredible lightning strikes on the way.

A little later, it rained hard for all of about ten minutes. All in all, a lovely end to a lovely day. Tomorrow, breakfast at the Jailhouse Cafe!
