So, Allen and I saw Ween at Stubb’s in Austin Friday night. It was a REALLY great concert. I mean, REALLY great. We should have gone to both shows but, now we know. Next time. It was only our second time to see Ween, the other time being at last year’s Austin City Limits. That is when we vowed to see them next time they came anywhere near close to us. The audience participation was phenomenal. It made it feel like we were being a part of something special. I WILL go see them again. They are like auditory and visual heroin, one time just ain’t enough. (No, mom, I’ve never done heroin. It is just a figure of speech.) It was incredibly hot. I had sweat running down me. Because of that, and the fact that I was trying to stay cooler by not wearing socks, I had uncountable blisters on my feet. It was my own stupidity. This is a picture of the worst one.
After the concert, we went back to our camp at McKinney Falls State Park. We had never stayed there before but, on the recommendation of Frank Peterson, who knows what he’s talking about, we decided to try it out. It was a really nice park. The sites were far enough away from each other that we felt almost alone. It was very quiet and peaceful. The water was a little higher than normal because of all the rain so, it was perfect for swimming. But, it wasn’t flowing down at a high rate of speed so, it was perfect for floating in one spot. We had a wonderful, relaxing time. Here are some pictures of our experience. There may be more at our flickr account.
