Knights in Shining armor



I went to a medieval fête this weekend and it was terrific. Lots of jousting, Crusaders, costumed revellers, stands, games, and a food tent where they served grilled chicken and cabbage salad (medieval fare, doncha know, lol!)
I took some pictures for inspiration to write a book - don't the characters just come to life?

Ohh!! I'm extremely jealous! I've wanted to go to a Medieval Faire for years but unfortunately there are none within driving distance.

Happy to hear you had a good time!

Guau... el sueño del pibe... me encantaria estar ahí... me enloquece eso de estar con armadura y peleando...
Saludos desde buenos aires...

What marvelous fun! My son has attended a couple of Renaissance Festivals, which he loved. He says I would greatly enjoy going. This is on my list of things to do in my lifetime.

*sigh* One of my favourtie time periods. I could wander around "Ren Fairs" for hours. Sometimes I wonder if I was born in the right time period *G*
I can't wait to read the story this trip inspired *G*

Just visited your photo blog again--I haven’t been there in a while. As I said there, Sam, I think you’re as skilled with the camera as you are with words. I love looking at your photographs as much as I enjoy reading your books. Thanks for posting your beautiful pictures. They always make me smile…and dream. :-)

Also--really sorry to hear about the food poisoning and then the computer problems on top of that. Hope you’re feeling much better today.
