Every once in a while, we go camping at this crazy place called Nelson Ledges Quarry Park. It's a... special place. You have to be REALLY OPEN MINDED to camp there. And you cannot be surprised when a strange man with a long beard offers to sell you some shrooms out of his backpack. You just have to say, "No thanks," and not make eye contact, and you'll be fine. Once you get accept the fact that people are smoking weed everywhere you turn, you can begin to enjoy (safely, not-drugged-out-edly) the magic that is Nelson Ledges. (Seriously. It's a surprisingly fun, family friendly camp ground. I'm really worried my mom-in-law is going to read this and think I'm a stoner, but no! No, Diane! I'm a good girl! Haha)
But on the weekends in the summer, they have music festivals and tons of vendors set up booths selling all kinds of awesome handmade stuff, like tie dye tshirts and hemp jewelry and blown glass art and things... Which is why I love it. Not because I do drugs in the woods. I LOVE THE ART!!!!
But let me tell you, just about every dreadlocked, plugged ears hippie chick at those festivals has on no bra and one of those awesome handmade patchwork skirts. And they look so comfy and carefree!
I couldn't do the no bra thing... I'm too heavy up top for that. But I could TOTALLY do the comfy, carefree skirt thing!
