Having never been to a barn dance before, and never having learned to dance, I was not expecting to have as good a time as I had. What a blast! A lot of the guests were people I worked with on Flicka 3, so it was really great to see them again. And MAN can those cowboys dance. I ended up dancing the whole night and found it really easy because the men were such strong dance partners and leaders that I just sort of followed along. I didn't step on anyone's toes, nor they mine.
When the tables from dinner were cleared away and the dancing started, I was on the sidelines filming the action using a new app I bought for my iPhone, Super8. It is a fun app because the end result looks like an old home movie. Unfortunately, I had no idea it didn't record sound. So the video below isn't quite as good as it could have been due to it being a silent movie (and the focus going in and out for some reason). And it's a shame because the band were fantastic; the fiddler is a North American champion (I think someone said he rates 6th in all of the US and Canada).
I didn't get home until after 4am!!!
I didn't take any photos (too busy dancing) but I know someone who took one or two with me in them so I will post them once I can get him to send them to me.
