Yes, it's usually in the summer, but this year, the festival is a cruise and we didn't want to spend an entire week with those people. I'll be posting about what we're doing in a few days in the Dark Shadows thread.
Thanks. I always look forward to reading about your Dark Shadows Trips. Have you decided yet if you're going to Bennington, VT? It sounds like a very interesting place and the photos that Joanna and Natalie posted of those old houses are beautiful. I'll bet that it'll be really pretty in the fall with all the trees turning.
