An old fashioned Father's Day at The Barnacle
Yesterday's Cars and Cigars at The Barnacle, broke the rain spell. It seemed as if every event held at The Barnacle was like having a rain dance, it would rain on the day of the event, but finally, the weather was perfect. It was sunny, not very hot and with low humidity.
Various classic cars filled the back lawn along with lots of other activities. Live music set the scene, there were hand-rolled cigars, hot dogs and hamburgers grilled right there and lots of candy and popcorn, too. A separate area, set up as a Biergarten was quite popular as the afternoon wore on. It was in a nice, cool, shady space, where you would just plop down with a cold one and not want to get up. Folks met new friends and hung out and enjoyed the old fashioned atmosphere.
This had to be one of my favorite scenes. Is there anything more relaxing than this? I could almost see the Monroe family out in the backyard with some cold lemonade and the newspaper. The vintage cars in the background sort of add to the scene too. Not too 1890s, more like the 1930s.
I was quite late getting to my own family's Father's Day BBQ. I didn't want to leave The Barnacle! There are lots more photos of yesterday's Father's Day Cars & Cigars (and Biergarten) event here.
