Wow, is it just me or is this faire just flying by? I mean, on Saturday it seemed like I walked through the gate at 10 am, but walked through the Tower gates at 1 pm. The morning flew by, as did the weekend. Three weekends down already. 😦
It was really good, however, to see so many people on Saturday. There were a few times the food pavilion was full. Even with the heat, there were a lot of people. I found out that there needs to be a better water/ale ratio if you want to stay hydrated this summer. Man, I left with a headache I know was more from lack of water than amount of ale consumed. I am down to needing 1 or 2 more pieces for my costume. I would like to get a “VanHelsing”-style hat and the hand-and-a-half sword down near the jousting ring. I think the hat will come first. I am also gonna get another shirt or two and some more pants. And, if the budget holds out, a nice cape. Wow, probably gonna have to prioritize a little…
Sunday was just plain hot and humid. I think I spent $15 on water and $5 on ale… Quite a different raito… I was suprised at the number of people that came in overall, considering it was both Sunday and Father’s Day. Again, man, what a hot day. I think, though I hope I am wrong, that the rest of the summer season will be more like it than last weekend.
I will see you all next weekend!
