Today Laurel and I headed to Veneta for a marvelous counterculture celebration, the 2009 Oregon Country Fair.
I wished we had an old VW bus to drive there, but had to settle for our Hybrid Highlander (less cool, but not nearly so prone to break down).
We hadn't been to the Fair for about fourteen years. It was good to see that the '60's flower power hippie ambience hadn't changed.
Except the original flower children, like us, had aged. But as some of my photos show, we're still youthful at heart.
When we got to the Main Stage, some classic rock was playing. And these ladies were groovin' to it. I went to free concerts in Golden Gate Park back in the good old '60s days. Today I had some flashbacks.
There didn't seem to be as many topless women as there were fifteen years ago. Or maybe I'm just getting to be such an old geezer, I didn't notice them so avidly as I did before. This was one of only a few photo opportunities.
