As long as summer is, I find it tends to slip away in the blink of an eye. That’s why every August Long, my friends and I like to take a little road trip. I mean if you ever want to get to know someone really well, just pack yourselves in a car with all the camping stuff you can squeeze in and just drive. It’s a beautiful tradition and I will take these memories with me forever. This year only two of us were able to embark on the journey. We drove to the mountains where a heritage festival was going on. Despite the somewhat rainy weather the trip was amazing! We went on guided nature tours, a mine tour, and participated in a lot of community events. It was so refreshing to go somewhere we’d never been before and experience so much nature with people we didn’t know. Many of the people who came out to the heritage events were either families with small children or locals who were at least 30 years older than us, which was actually pretty awesome. We met a bunch of really interesting people who were willing to share their stories and knowledge with us. It was such an amazing way to spend the weekend!
I chose to post Old pine for this Soundtrack Sunday because Ben Howard manages to capture everything I’m feeling in his lyrics and I think this song is the perfect match for this weekend roadie.
