back in time

the year is 1525. the place is revel grove, oxfordshire, england. plenty of room for cosplay & revelry. this is the maryland renaissance festival.

many of these delightful photos were taken by steve or shari (our comrade-in-arms for this adventure). that's how i appear in a few of them :)

once we got through the loooong, tedious traffic in order to park, this was a welcome sight.



we saw these "tree people" all day, walking and chanting everywhere they went
 
first things first - gotta get some food





not quite the "badger & sword" pub we'd hoped for, but close
about time my son was properly fitted for his own weapon

his size belies his ferocity with a sword
the kids' play area's pirate ship was BRILLIANT



archery demonstration


methinks a pagan forest god or green man

cheerleader for the jousting


king henry viii & catherine of aragon


a jousting challenger from the holy roman empire








 HUZZAH!

  1. Methinks thou hast commemorated this fair in a light most favourable and befitting our troupe of merry adventurers! And I would be most honoured if thou wouldst share thine own photos for my scrapbooking!
