Some people love Burning Man, but REAL people love Burning Uke!

In mid September Mark and I joined 130 other crazed musicians for 3 days of strumming in Big Sur. The weather was perfect and the scenery was exquisite.

Ah...sweet spoiling! Mark supplied us with fresh cappuccino AND a propane heater to keep us toasty in the bracing morning temps.

On Saturday we could sit in on uke or hula sessions, jam extemporaneously or just relax & enjoy.

Because of fire danger, we couldn't burn the 12 foot tall uke this we burned it in effigy and sacrificed a real uke builder on Sunday morn.

Of course Mark had to take a few glorious bike rides, complete with his IPod Shuffle--you know the one that plugs into his helmet.

When Judy wasn't strumming, she was busy playing the spud and harmonizing.

Of course Jon guarded the campsite.

but poor Spencer didn't appreciate Mom messing with him during an afternoon nap.

Thanks to the Santa Cruz Uke Club for yet another wonderful weekend of fun, frolic, fantastic food and frivolity!

It looks like a very fun week-end. I like all the photos (the scenery is spectacular), but my favorite photo is the one with Spencer giving you a dirty look.
