At least once every fall Dale and I spend at day at King Richard’s Faire. It makes for a day of merriment, fun, beer and laughs. This past weekend we went for the 2nd time and we brought our friends Tom & Anne with us.
We enjoyed the parade.
This is actually one of my favorite parts of the day. I love to see the King and Queen and all of their court, along with many of the merchants, parade through the site.
We enjoyed the bagpipes and drums. And Anne enjoyed dancing with them.
Tom and Dale truly enjoyed the belly dancers. Ahem. Seriously, those women are talented and strong and very entertaining to watch.
We enjoyed shopping and people-watching and drinking beer. Lots of beer.
That, of course, led to something we didn’t enjoy so much. The portajohns. An evil necessity of ever there was one.
We enjoyed and enjoyed and enjoyed. And then we went to Tom and Anne’s house to soak in their new hot tub – a truly fabulous way to end our day at the faire.
