North Atlantic Blues Fest – vacation pix

I thought I would just post some pictures that I just had fun with and give a little more on NABF.  I keep mentioning the B&B I stay at and the great breakfasts.  Here are two.

Now Sunday was a bit rainy but that doesn’t hinder NABF.  While waiting, Paul said come along for a TV interview.  When I got there a man named Angus introduced himself to me, one blues fan to another.  He was also going to be interviewed.  I didn’t know that I knew of him until the interviewer said he was US Senator Angus King, a former Governor.  This was his 6th or 7th time at the Fest.  When he was done I introduced myself with my title from a previous life where I was a Governor’s appointee working with his appointees.

I was also on the live facebook post of Alexis P Suter.  I got to talk with her as they came into the grounds.
