Weekend Washout

Gazebo. Check. Friends. Check. Nibbles. Check. Booze. Check. Bonfire. Check. Telescope. Check.

Clear Skies. Ch- oh no, wait!

It rained ALL NIGHT on Friday, meaning that our grand plans for a Meteor Shower Garden Party were ruined! We had the garden party under the gazebo and had a good time drinking and chatting despite the disappointment with the weather.

I spoke to my Grandpa the next day who said when he woke up in the morning the North Star (Polaris) was shining brightly over Arran, more luminous than he had seen in ages! Perhaps we should have went to bed early, and tried to get up early?

Ah well. There is always next year!

Did you manage to see the Leonids where you are?

The weekend wasn’t a total washout – I had a sleepover on Saturday as Schmerc was gallavanting in Berlin. We (me and my homies) made use of the new jamming room, and made the video above. Heeeeee!!!

      You’re so right! It was only the weather that was a wash out. A weekend spent with friends and family is always good! Will you be looking out for the meteor shower next year? Hope so! When you catch it, it’s amazing!
