The California report:

Up long before the day-o (3:30 to be precise), we'd dressed the site with candles and flowers and were ready for dance-up well before the 5:30 start time. With its usual May morning site a soggy swamp after a wet spring, Apple Tree Morris in Sebastopol, California moved its festivities to a brick-and-turf labyrinth this year. Rather lumpy for the dancers, but at least they didn't sink. And no sprained ankles, either... Actually it looked very pretty -- the circular labyrinth ringed by candles and flowers -- framing the dancing just right.

As for me, I played my ukulele til the sun came up...oh, and my concertina and my dulcimer.

The weather was PERFECT! -- the first truly superb day of the year.

A leisurely breakfast pot-luck and singing session, a couple of dance-out stops (a school and a senior residence), and then we were off to a pub in Santa Rosa for our well-deserved pints of the best.

Sunrises ensured for another year.
