I looked at Derek (on Wednesday) and said, "Do you want to go to the Renaissance Festival this weekend?". I think his eye balls almost popped out of the sockets out of shock. Yes, I was asking to go to the Sterling, NY Renaissance Festival, because it was pirate weekend. I didn't have anything to wear, which I have been scolded by friends about, as a lot of goths my age have a poet shirt or two in their closets....I do not. Haha! So, my dress and hat was ordered from www.dresslikeapirate.com and the rest were items we had or borrowed from a friend. Derek on the other hand, was prepared and looked wonderful!
Admittedly, I usually don't care too much for Renn Fair's. but seeing as it's been 13 years since I've been to one and Derek loving them so much, it was time to treat him to a day of fun......
And it was a lot of fun! We brought along these two misfits, Bryan (left) and Kyla (right). It was Kyle's first Renn Fair, so he was visiting all the vendors and made a lot of awesome purchases. We all were very merry, because the Mead was plentiful, the entertainment was great and the weather was beautiful.
Did I mention the Mead? Yeah, the Mead was really good.
Other highlights of the day:
Bryan met someone taller than him and I think he wanted to steal this guys sword.
Derek did axe throwing. (We also did archery and forgot to give the guys the camera)
Watched the Queen's procession
"God save the Queen!"
Taking a break and watched people getting rides on the "War Horse".
Listened to some very raunchy and hilarious poetry.
Got to hang out with Her Royal Majesty, Queen Elizabeth I (She was okay with us, even though we were pirates)
Many laughs and fun were had. Hahaha!
Glad that we went this year and glad everyone enjoyed themselves. Hurrah! Hurrah!
Thank you for reading!
