My hubby and sons at Old Mission State Park. Zach obviously thinks he sees an eagle. Or something.
We got the blues again. All four of us.
Last year’s pilgrimage to Wallace for the Historic Wallace Blues Festival was such a hit, our sons clamored to return again this year. Anytime a 13-year-old and an 18-year-old actually WANT to do something together is special.
Turns out we weren’t the only ones to think the event was something special. The Inland Empire Blues Society voted it the Best Blues Event of 2012. Pretty remarkable for a first-time outing, put together in 90 days and hosted by a town of 784!
We found out how quickly the word had spread when I phoned the Wallace Inn in April to reserve our room. There was no room at the inn, though the Festival wasn’t until July 12-14. The helpful woman at the desk referred me to a Kellogg hotel, adding, “A trolley will shuttle guests back and forth to Wallace.”
Now, that’s good planning. Cindy Hval, SR
Couple questions: Have you ever been to Old Mission State Park? And, what's the deal with Cda restaurants not opening 'til 4 on Sundays?
