We usually attend the Russian River Blues Festival by viewing the proceeds from the opposite side of the river, high above and a good distance from ground zero blues, in the bed of our specially equipped bluesmobile 9see picture way below). But this year we could not go through the complicated procedure necessary to get a primo viewing site alongside Neely Road due to the fact that Gail had to work on Monte Rio Beach. When she got off around 1:30 we got a couple of kayaks and took off to rendezvous with the kids and an altogether different adventure.

Here are a couple snaps of our adventures yesterday.

The highlights for me were the Boz Scaggs covers of two of my favorite Willy Deville songs, “Cadillac Walk” and “Mixed Up Shook Up Girl. The low light was pulling the much heavier kayak up themuch steeper incline.
