I Want That Jacket

DSC00531

Alan wakes us up, he had warned us about staying up late, and there was no time to nap. Get up Nack, get out your tent. Errrr its wet still!

DSC00532

They umbrellas, as if that was going to help?

 

DSC00533

The mud was still muddy.

DSC00535

However Alan had booked and treated us to something.

DSC00536

Something that was going to be wet.

DSC00541

Something in the Tranquil area!

DSC00545

Yes that right he’d treated us to a bus ride!

DSC00538

“Your going to enjoy this Nack”, He said as he removed his clothes.

DSC00539

What's all this about then.

We had hot warm showers in wooden cubicals in the bus, and then we cooked ourselves in a steam oven and then

FB_IMG_1438031857179

we got wet again!

FB_IMG_1438031852804

Only this was a warm, relaxing, refreshing, enjoyable kind of wetness.

FB_IMG_1438031835664

Where they served alcoholic wetness in glasses to you!

FB_IMG_1438031831102

This was the life.

DSC00542

Sometime later after they prised me from the warmth, the wetness and me being happy, so very happy, Alan says “I knew you liked being wet really!”

DSC00540

We clean our muddy ataire

 

DSC00544

Make a note of the number for future reference

DSC00546

And head back to the real world!!! erk!

DSC00548

We head back tot he tent, to get rid of our clothes and change for the environment we were going to hang about in.

DSC00549

The weather though was getting worse not better. I mean worse. Yes I do.

DSC00552

There are some bad places to camp. that is one of them.

DSC00553

then it rains so hard Nack heads for a Gazebo and that is that he is not leaving.

DSC00554

Alan and Zoe agree until Zoe says she has left something in the tent. And Alan being a real man braved the weather I left to head back. Me and Zoe huddled together and she lit a fag for some warmth.

DSC00555

We watched the tents fly around the campsite like tumble weeds.

DSC00556

Just how many had given up and gone home leaving their tents? There where hundreds abandoned empty. It was an ugly scene!

DSC00558

We headed to the woods.

DSC00560

the all day disco

DSC00559

And took cover with a can and some mud

DSC00561

the tunnes played

DSC00567

the party people danced

DSC00568

the mud squelched.

DSC00569

There was no way anyone was keeping dry.

DSC00570

Eventually though it was time to have a change of scene.

DSC00571

and we left the muddy dance floor for the muddy feilds!DSC00572

where the party continued.

DSC00576

the bands played.

DSC00579

and my feet stayed dry.

DSC00580

“I think it’s stopped raining” said Zoe.

DSC00582

Let the sun shine.

DSC00586

But it didn’t and when the band stopped the crowd dispensed!

DSC00589

Quick to the front!

DSC00588

yay the next band we will have front seats for.

DSC00590

Eventually we moved on to find lesser muddy spots.

DSC00591

And so we went to the Coliseum.

DSC00592

Another all day disco where we could stand high and see the terror torie! DSC00594

a guy had his whole family dancing.

DSC00596

The DJ’s played on regardless.

DSC00598

because that's what they do when they have no crowd!

DSC00595

And then there were those hard core fans.

DSC00600

Give it some.

DSC00602

wave your hands in the air.

DSC00604

and then I saw a jacket, a jacket I really wanted, hey over here, I want that jacket.

DSC00606

As it happened we went back to the whiskey tent. From here things felt better.

DSC00608

Whilst Alan & zoe went to the Wilderness stage I went to Physcomedia tent.

DSC00611

the lights were grovey.

DSC00612

And the band good this time.

DSC00617

Once done there I popped my head into The Living Room.

DSC00619

Where there was a “family” band on, spreading the love.

DSC00621

I went to the main stage to find Alan and Zoe.

DSC00624

And that was easy enough to find them.

DSC00626

and we were just in time to see a firework show.

DSC00629

but that wasn’t the only thing to go up in flames.

DSC00633

There in the lake the lego boat was on fire.

DSC00635

And it burned well.

DSC00640

Very well. You could feel the heat, and I started drying out!

DSC00641

And then came on the party band.

DSC00642

Than band to get us all in the mood, for fun, and boogieing.

DSC00647

They brought atmosphere.

DSC00648

Talent

DSC00653

And a lot of dance movement, until she was out of puff.

DSC00657

We had on on encore!

DSC00668

And then there was silence!

DSC00662

The view though of the festival was great.

DSC00669

And with the crowds we mad our muddy way back to the other side of the lake

DSC00670

where there was more mud,

DSC00671

and mud,

DSC00672

and mud.

DSC00673

We headed to the hotdog store and Zoe ordered me a hotdog and a cup of tea whilst others where in search of real orange juice.

FB_IMG_1438014003841

The hotdog was a long time coning, but when it did it was very very welcome.

DSC00674

once we were all dogged out it was time to head back to the camp site.

DSC00675

There was a ray of sunshine.

DSC00676

and there was a ray of search light, a bit late now, and then there was a time to close my eyes, curl up in bed and listen to the group of people next door coming down all night long. I mean on the hour every hour. Oh Joy!
