Tampa Bay Blues Festival...

Music is the universal language of mankind...
It washes away from the soul the dust of everyday life...

April is a favorite month for both Arvid and I.  Not only do we both have birthdays in the same month, but one of our favorite Blues Festivals happens to be this month every year.

Aside from The Chicago Blues Festival happening every June, our next favorite is the Tampa Bay Blues Festival, taking place at Vinoy Park, St. Petersburg, three days in a row.  The location is just beautiful for a musical festival.  It's right on the water with the cool breezes always coming your way.  As mentioned in the previous post, it's going to be a good time:)

Every year we have been lucky to spot Dolphins swimming in the Bay.  It is a beautiful sight and very relaxing.  After just coming from Mexico and seeing dolphins swimming every day I look forward again to hopefully seeing some more.  It is a beautiful and relaxing sight.  Makes me happy.

During this time we forget all about our laptops, Arvid always turns off his cell phone.  Correction, seems like his cell is always turned off these days.He says this is just a weekend to enjoy, relax and not worry about anything nor anyone....I on the other hand never turn off my phone because I always want to be reached in case Brutus needs us or family.

It is with great expectation we look forward to this years Festival.  Arvid says the line-up is spectacular....check it out

What I like most about it is the openness, being able to just walk around and hear the music, also I take a book.  I love to read and have the music in the back ground.  Best of all we get to enjoy another weekend doing what we like best..  

Music gives a soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination and life to everything 

Music speaks what cannot be expressed, 

soothes the mind and gives it rest, 
heals the heart and makes it whole, 
flows from heaven to the soul....
