19 to 30...

The Mountain Winery, Swell Season, and mixed emotions

Last night Luke and I went out to celebrate our birthdays and 6th anniversary.  We went to the Mountain Winery in Saratoga, CA.  This is our third summer in CA, and we've talked about going every summer.  Yesterday evening, our plans finally took us.

Mountain Winery and Swell Season

The Swell Season was in concert.  2 and a half years ago we had tickets to see them but were not able to go to the show.  Last night we finally saw them.

It was a BEAUTIFUL evening.  A warm day lead to a crisp night; cool but not too cold.  For the first time since living in CA I looked up at the stars several times, even saw a shooting star once.  It felt like a late October night in the Carolinas. 

Wonderful show. Amazing venue.

Then, things ended abruptly.  Something that I'd never wanted to witness or experience happened.   During a light-hearted moment in the show, someone came crashing to the stage.  From where we sat, it looked like someone had fallen off of the light rigging.  Seems it was suicide.  Read more here

It was good to eventually return home.

  1. Oh my goodness! That is just awful. I am so sorry that you two witnessed that and am sad that that man felt that he had to end his life.....and in front of so many people.

    On another note, glad you two had a semi good date and great weather!!
