Dunes Vintage Camper Rally 2017



This year there was a different turnout than in 2016, as far as the morning at least. I think the weather curtailed many plans. It was cold and breezy when I arrived in the morning, with a lot of rain coming in the afternoon. I am sure more will arrive after I leave.

Even with that, those who I saw at the camp grounds were enjoying camping. Weather is part of the adventure. Meeting people is part of the fun. Getting away from daily life and just sitting in the middle of the woods to unwind is a great feeling. Fires were burning to keep warm. Children were riding bicycles. Dogs abound were communicating (in a nice way), sniffing, and enjoying their walks.

Here are few photos I took of the those participating in this years event. I estimate the camp grounds were 85% occupied. The glamping was a small portion of that.








This event runs through the weekend. Go check it out!

Alice @ Wonderland 4/6/17


Alice @ Wonderland is produced by special arrangement with
Pioneer Drama Service, Inc., Englewood, CO


A totally cool modern spin. This contemporary piece shows off Alice and the supporting characters in a fun way. Totally refreshing. Oh, and do not say the "W" word, or by ruling of the queen you must dance. (That part in itself was very cool. Well done!)

All of your favorite characters are here. Alice, the White Rabbit, the Queen of Hearts, Mad Hatter. It is very nice to see each youth ensemble member give it their directed touch, letting go of self and giving to the audience. Each time I see them, they get better.

As I go the photos, and reflect on my experience from this play, I cannot help but remember Jefferson Airplane's White Rabbit. Specifically, the lyric "Go ask Alice When she's ten feet tall". In fact, for adults, I would recommend this song as a prequel to seeing it.

I have placed the cast names at the end of the blog. Here are the photos I took.
























Cannot get enough. Loved it when they used the "W" word . . .






























There goes the "W" again . . .






























































And Alice used the "W" word to get herself out of trouble . . .









Ah, finally a dial tone. Hello . . .




Here are some photographs from before the performance . . . you have to stash all of them somewhere away from the public . . .
