HAPPY SUPER SATURDAY !
I’m off to the Ohio Renaissance Festival this morning. I should be leaving the house about 6:30 a.m. as it’s about a 3 hour drive from here. One of my ‘dulcimer’ buddies is driving down with me. It will be her first time going. It’s always a lot of fun, as they all dress and act the part of the people of the times.
Today’s theme is Nordic Adventures:
Visitors from the Northland bring Viking revelry to the village. Put on your horns, braids, and beards for a full day of Nordic adventure
I haven’t got any of the above , but I do have my costume. Pictures will be posted tomorrow.
Have a great day all ! Another wonderful one on the Way !
