Thomas Point Beach – Day 2

We planned to get breakfast at the festival, so after parking took the scenic walk to the food area.

0 (1)The tide was high, so the beach looked different from my afternoon walk yesterday.

Our seats are to the left of the picture. The yellow building is the campground gift shop and food area. However, they do not serve breakfast.

2The first group of the day – Snap Jackson – is an acoustic quartet from Stockton, California.

Their Americana, Bluegrass, Soul, and Old Time Music is easy to listen to in the early morning.

2aaBy noon I was ready for my daily walk through the campground.

2abThat looks relaxing.

3 (5)The seagulls were taking advantage of low tide to look for lunch.

3 (7)This clam digger’s work also needs to be done during low tide.

3 (8)This boat is now mired in mud.

3 (9)As I sat in a shady area of the grounds, an egret landed and began looking for food.

3 (14)We were surprised a few hours later when Elizabeth (left) brought Hezekiah to the concert.

He surprised his parents and us by coming home from college in Presque Isle for the holiday weekend. I think Hannah was the only one who knew he was coming.

He traveled with another college guy who lives in this area.

3 (15)The Travelin’ McCourys were delightful to listen to in the late afternoon.

They are talented musicians.

3 (16)My favorite group of the day was Daily and Vincent.

They do a fabulous job of mixing bluegrass and gospel.

3 (17)My favorite song of the day was when Daily and Vincent came out into the audience and sang Wonderful Grace of Jesus – acapella.

It brought the audience to their feet.

3 (18)Wonderful grace of Jesus, Greater than all my sin; How shall my tongue describe it, Where shall its praise begin? Taking away my burden, Setting my spirit free; For the wonderful grace of Jesus reaches me.

Refrain

Wonderful the matchless grace of Jesus, Deeper than the mighty rolling sea; Wonderful grace, all sufficient for me, for even me. Broader than the scope of my transgressions, Greater far than all my sin and shame, O magnify the precious Name of Jesus. Praise His Name!

Wonderful grace of Jesus, Reaching to all the lost, By it I have been pardoned, Saved to the uttermost, Chains have been torn asunder, Giving me liberty; For the wonderful grace of Jesus reaches me.

Refrain

Wonderful grace of Jesus, Reaching the most defiled, By its transforming power, Making him God’s dear child, Purchasing peace and heaven, For all eternity; And the wonderful grace of Jesus reaches me.

3 (19)   A view of the audience from under the tent – which is behind a driveway, behind the main concert grounds. There was a very large Saturday night crowd.

3 (20)Someone was handing out glow sticks. Hezekiah chose to wear his on his head – giving him a “angelic” look.

Do angels wear baseball caps? 🙂 I bet they do.

3 (21)My favorite instrumental of the day was a fiddle tune by Steep Canyon Rangers.

This guy’s style and talent is amazing.

  1. Looks like you’re having a great time with great family and great music! I saw one of those “pop-up” campers with the pointed top just the other day in a park near us where I like to walk — I thought it was quite interesting! Enjoy the rest of your stay — we’ve had heavy rain here — hope it doesn’t make it’s way up there!
