Renaissance Fair

On Saturday, Mike and I went to a local Renaissance Fair. It was great. We sat and listened to what life was like in the 16th century... let's just say that I am glad I live in this century! There were Jesters on unicycles, Jousters, Gypsies, Knights and so much more. The costumes were great.





Mike and I were put in the stocks. They hurt! We were only in there long enough for the pictures. I cannot imagine what the poor people went through being in there for days, weeks or longer!
Here we are standing next to a suit of armor. The knights who wore these had to be in great shape, they weighed in excess of 150 lbs! Imagine running or fighting in this!
Mike and I were taken back in time and became "royalty". Don't I look elegant? Mike looks so regal!
