Another flashback...to mid-August this time.
What is this woman doing?
Hmmm...must be contageous...
Actually we are peeking through the kudzu along the Cumberland river to see this:
Its a Dragonboat!
Dragonboat racing is a 2000 year old tradition The history and mythology (Chinese) surrounding the Dragonboat Festival is a bit grisly, so we just stick to enjoying the boats ...here is an interesting bit about the celebration.
"All in one boat - Working to find Synchronicity" say the t-shirts at our local festival. I like that attitude :)
Can you see the dragon head at the fore of the boat? So cool.
I'm dreaming about some day in the future when I can talk all my girls into joining one of the teams so we can see what its like to actually row one of these!
Meanwhile, watching these beautiful dragonboats is a nice preview to the season of Michaelmas (later in September) when we will be really immersed in dragon stories.
