So today, I was driving home from work. I passed Veterans Park and saw this beautiful bus sitting in the parking lot, surrounded by all of these beautiful people. I slowed down for a better look. Then my instincts kicked in and I ran home to grab my camera. In such a hurry I accidentally picked up my mothers camera and ran out the door. However, there was no time to turn back - there were people in Avon Lake with a story that needed to be told. And I am here to tell it to you.
You see, these people, some might know them as "hippies" - to me, they are just normal people living their life to the fullest of their dreams. They were so free spirted and happy. And they were all living in this bus.
Actually, I think its sorta crazy how Avon Lake attracts all these buses, if you read my story about the "Jesus Loves You Bus," you'd know what i'm talking about. There has to be a reason. Why Avon Lake? I don't know the answer. But i'm glad they came.
See, these people met at this place, sorta like a festival (well, thats how i'm imagining it). It was called Rainbow or Rainbows, I don't quite remember. They all met and have been traveling the world together with no real direction. Right now, they are on a mission to make it to Mexico. See, all of them are so unique - they have their own personalities and their own traits. This one guy, he resembled Jim Morrison to me. His name was "Random." And this other man, he had dreds and he played music. His name was "Mowgli" like from the Jungle Book. And an older man, legally, his name is Chubbakka.
They were such nice people. The bus is fueled by donations. I truly think its marvelous that people these days actually still do whatever it takes to make them happy.
Life is an adventure, and they're living it to it's fullest. I'm so lucky to have had the chance to met these wonderful people. It was like, seeing a part of a movie with my own two eyes.
