Son David and his fiancée Amy picked us there for the 10-minute drive to Redmond’s Marymoor Park. There, an amphitheater that holds up to 5,000 was open for a Beach Boys concert.
We all got seated on our low slung chairs, happy we’d arrived early enough to snag a prime shady location.
David and Amy had prepared a terrific picnic dinner, complete with appetizers, salad and sandwiches.
We also lined up at one of the beverage tents more than once, making sure we were in compliance with rules reminiscent of experiences in Utah and Kansas.
Examples? Well, bottles were sold only for parties of two more. In other words, we had to go in pairs to buy a bottle of wine. And a line monitor warned David he’d have to finish his glass before buying any more. Okay, chug-a-lug! This discourages overindulgence exactly how?
They were terrific, and seemed to hit their stride particularly in the concert’s second half. The moon name out and a green-lit drone flew overhead.
It finally had to end with songs like Barbara Ann and Fun Fun Fun (‘til her daddy takes the T-Bird away).
