Another CoastFest under my belt. You should have been there, Diary.
The Georgia Department of Natural Resources sponsors CoastFest every year in Brunswick. They set up this massive festival right next to the beautiful marshes. Visitors enter the free festival and get to do all sorts of fun, hands-on activities about the natural and cultural environment of coastal Georgia.
We had our usual spot, between the cool state parks fort people and their roaring cannons and Jim Sawgrass’ Native American tent. This year, though, my motor was humming all day to the beat of new neighbors—the African Drumming tent! On my other side, colonial cricket games kept me dodging balls. Thank goodness they didn’t break my new windshield!
But really, all this excitement aside, I was there to show people how fun and exciting archaeology can be, and how important it is to preserve sites! So once my handlers and many volunteers got me set up and put up our tent and all the hands-on activities, we were ready to greet the thousands of CoastFest visitors heading our way.
Even cowgirls love archaeology! Until my next CoastFest rodeo, goodbye Diary!
