July 5

I went to the Renaissance Faire today for the first time. It was amazing. There was so much to see between the shows and the spectators. And while the shows were pretty good (jousting, comedic sword fighting, acrobats, whip cracking) people watching was the best. There were folks who were completely dedicated to their costumes, elaborate recreations of medieval attire. And folks whose costumes were painfully undersized, or comedically confounding. My friends and I were content at times to simply sit and watch the crowd. And eat…turkey legs and ice cream crepes. I want to go back again only next time I plan on wearing my own costume. I had a lot of fun today; I’m thankful for the new experience.
