July kicked into touring time for me, as I hit the road with Tambura Rasa on a trek across B.C. to play at the South County Fair. We had plenty of adventures, including going down a logging road in search of hot springs with giant logging trucks barreling at us the other way (we later discovered the correct road...). Thunderstorms in Fernie before our show left the entire town without electricity until an hour before we started. Props to The Royal in Fernie for taking care of us amidst the storm. The crowd at South County Fair were with us the whole way, and chilling in the hammocks under the stage before our set was pretty sweet.
Wedding preparations were in full swing and the day of the wedding couldn't have been better. So sweet to be surrounded by loved ones and celebrating our union on a cloudless summer day!
Bless and I then rolled down the Oregon coast and into Portland for a honeymoon full of good food, wine, hot tubs, and plenty of relaxing. Oh, and lots of coffee drinking and clothes shopping in Portland. No tax rocks!
