Michael Hooping Floyd Site

Michael and I took some time off for ourselves and went to Floyd Fest this past weekend.  This is a music festival nestled in the mountains of Virginia right off the Blue Ridge Parkway.  We arrived into Floyd around 1 and had some lunch in the surprisingly artsy little town of Floyd.  Although it has only one stoplight, it seemed to have a lot more culture than much bigger cities.  After lunch, we went on a wine tour at the Chateau Morrisette.   The chateau was amazing and we were shocked at how much wine was being produced in the middle of the mountains of Virginia.  They put out about a million bottles of wine a year.  We brought home a few bottles of red ourselves. 

We then went on to the festival where we set up camp in a great location close to the music stages, showers, and cool neighbors.  The weather was amazing when we arrived and remained so all weekend.  It felt like fall with clouds intermingling with sun and a great breeze.  

The music all weekend was fantastic.  Highlights were the Akoya African Band and Toubab Krewe also with African influence.  Gabi La-La was one of Michael’s highlights as she is so unexplainabley odd and fascinating.   

Graham had a great time staying with his Pop-Pop.  They went to the movies to see Cars, saw horses at my mom’s cousin Ann’s farm, and fed Bo-Bo too many fruit loops.  Graham loves his Pop-Pop very much!
