Free, donations will be gratefully received

Dear Lovely People,

I will be at the top of Mount Diablo watching the sun rise and celebrating the Summer Solstice with Druid (OBOD) ritual.  This year it is Monday, June 20, 2016.  If you can, it would be lovely if you could join me.

Mount Diablo State Park does not open its gates until 8:00AM and sunrise is a bit before that (actually quite a lot before that; 5:46AM).  What that means is that you will need to enter the park the day before and camp out.

At time of writing this, there are lots of spots/spaces at the
Juniper Campground, which is not far from the summit.  You will need to book it yourself.  Please bring your vitals, both solid and liquid, for both evening and morning.  We could do a potluck. Bring your music stuff if you have some.  Just to let the non-Druids amongst us know, Druids do a lot of storytelling and music  - preferably of the naughty kind.

So book Juniper or wherever, but for Sunday, June 19.

No need to RSVP.

If there is someone else you think may like to be there too please feel free to forward this invitation.

Blessings to one and all,
