Jousting

A couple weeks ago when we went to that wedding there was also a medieval reenactment going on. I kept my eye on things but there really wasn't all that much action. I did sneak a few shots though


Yesterday I spent part of my day off doing some much needed cleaning and the rest of the time I did a whole lot of nothing. Today I believe some shopping is in order. There are a couple thrift shops I've been wanting to check out and today is the perfect day to do that

We live near Medieval Times...it's a dinner theater with a whole lot of jousting going on. I've never been to it but I've heard it's fun.

Have a great time at the thrift store...wish I could join you!

Happy thrifting :)

That is one battered shield (wow). I've always wanted to go to one of those medieval dinner events. Maybe one day, right? ;o)

Love the costumes - and the armor, which appears well used!

Karen said...

Was the re-enactment part of the wedding? or was it just at the same park?

Catherine said...

I like shopping or doing nothing MUCH better than doing cleaning... is that wrong? :p

I would love to see some jousting. I've never seen it for real.

You have a great day shopping. Getting to visit places you want to visit is a fun thing to do.

Have a terrific day. My best to Duke. :)

Very nice! We're going to a Renaissance Fair in a couple weeks. It's always a good time. I hope that you've had fun thrifting today.

I've always wanted to go to one of those reenactments. They look like it would be a blast!
I bet the food was good!! (Yes, I'm always thinking of food) :)

When a wedding ceremony includes a jousting match, methinks it might not bode well for the longevity of the marriage, but it might make for the basis of another unreality show.
