My last blog was all about ditching a show because of the weather. It was based on my real show in Bar Harbor, Maine. Up until Saturday morning, the weather reports said rain both days, and cold as well.
But when I checked (just a bit OCD) on Saturday, low and behold the weather for Sunday looked pretty good.
Me: "Okay, do you want to drive up (3 hours) in the morning, or do you want to leave this afternoon and stay overnite?"
My husband: "Aaaargghhh. Okay, let's stay over. I'll start packing. You find a room somewhere near the park." No small task. After frantic searching online and a couple of phone calls, I found a place that welcomed dogs as well as people.
We arrived in BH at 5pm, checked in and were able to relax for the rest of the evening. Next morning we were out the door by 7 and all set up by 9 am. Even tho the official opening time was 10, traffic was already brisk from 9 on.
Surprisingly, there were more people in the park during the cool, misty fog. I sold three paintings before noon. The afternoon was much more pleasant but the traffic slowed down. Maybe they all headed to the beach???
Regardless, I'm very glad we made it for one day. My latest painting of Bass Harbor Light did find a new home in Florida.
