We attended the Renaissance Faire Sunday, April 26, 2009.  The weather was a perfect, sunny and 73 degrees with a nice light breeze.  We got there at 10:15 AM before it became very crowded.  By 1:30 PM it was almost shoulder to shoulder with people of all walks of life. We left about 2:00PM after having a fun time walking around, watching some of the shows, dancers, jesters, royalty and a lot of very jolly folks.  Beer was flowing and the food was abundant. There were many a sun burned bosom by the end of the day.  It is fun to watch all the people in their costumes, and some strange attire having fun and showing off.  Donna had a roasted Turkey leg for lunch and I had a Polish sausage, slice of cheese and bread.  There were all kinds of good food available but we steered clear of the really bad stuff.  The following pictures show some of the fun had.







The Three Musketeers and The Lady!

Poet, waxing eloquent Shakespeare prose.

And he continues!

And he continues, Still!

Actually this gentleman was very good at Shakespeare and was a delight to listen to.


Great Costumes.

Dude Getting Closer

Aha!, Dude has Arrived
