The Penguin and I enjoyed a great Arts Festival

We spent the day in Mill Valley in the middle of a large redwood forest. It is situated north of San Francisco and each year they hold a very large arts festival. Lots of people attend with their families and dogs. Saw a few quirky outfits and there are food stalls set up. I enjoyed the photography exhibits but I didn’t see any street photography on display or much travel photography outside of a German photographer’s wonderful photos of wildlife from around the world. They were truly stunning.

Of course I could not photograph the exhibits so you’ll just have to believe me.  If you’re interested, scroll down to see my captioned photos. If not, close this post and wait for another post on books. I have finished a few.

It was all a bit too  much for some people.

I sneaked a photo of this interesting, very shiny sculpture.

Colourful lanterns hung from the trees through out the festival grounds.

We listened to the ‘funk’ band for almost an hour. Great band.

I loved Mr and Mrs Hats sitting in front of us while we listened to the music.

Then they moved to better seats and we could see their faces.

She spend her time listening to the band and sketching them. I loved watching her.

This woman was dancing and writhing around like a snake. A little off her head at times but fun to watch. Don’t you love people watching? !

As we left the festival we passed the entrance to the children’s area where they had art and music activities for them.

We met the Lovely Henry on the way back to the car. What a smoocher he is.

I live a retired life in Tasmania, Australia. I love books, travel, animals, photography, motor biking and good friends. I indulge in all these activities with the little Travellin' Penguin who has now shared four continents with me. We love book shops, photography walks and time with friends as all our family is in USA and Canada. I enjoy visitors to my blog so hope you'll stop by.

  1. lovely photos… i’ve been there but not to a festival; just to visit my brother who used to live there… in a houseboat… the people i used to see were quite friendly; i’m surprised you were rebuffed… lovely trees…

  2. Loved the pics, and yes I love people watching at Festivals, particularly the dancers.

    The thing about big hats though is that they can really get in the way of your view which I find irritating. You need a hat if you are outside with no shade, but I like them to be as modest as possible. That said hats are fun to look at.
