Amber and I set out for the Meadfest Saturday afternoon on a gorgeous day. The new venue is right near the Capitol and next door to Cheeseman Park at the Tears-McFarlane House. It's their sixth year, and we hadn't been able to make it back since 2013 when it wasn't in nearly as nice a space. That year, Deana was able to attend with us.
But this week has brought her the sad news of her mother's decline from a stroke so that she was only able to be with us in spirit this time around.
The new digs:
There were several small meaderies who don't have their bottles in as many stores as the bigger boys. The Dragon Meadery is out of Aurora and had a really lovely Chamomile mead I brought home with me.
Sunday morning on the way back from the early morning airport drive, we had some great cloud colors.
and the Canadian geese are on the move!
