30 Minutes in the Life: February 2016
It’s that time of year again, when the weather is cool and I am ready for something different. I am sure by now some of you have learned a few of my likes, but for all the new ladies, here I go. Time travel! If I could time travel, I would go back to the days of knight wielding swords, vikings in battle and yes, even to the lands of the Lord of the Rings, Game of Thrones, The 100, The Outlander or the Sharnnara Chronicles. Oh yeah, I kind of like the bloody sword wielding movies.
So when I discovered that Vikings and Valkyries was the theme for this Renaissance fair weekend, I was pretty much ready to roll. And if you are traveling to South Florida in March, you should make sure that you find time to head there as well.
Elves were a popular theme this weekend even though the actual theme was Vikings
I am not quite sure what character she was supposed to be but she had pointy ears and she was very colorful
These two characters had seriously pointy ears.
Beautiful melodies were played on this gorgeous harp.
Our lunch table was invaded by Vikings.
The guy reminded me of Floki in the show The Vikings
The guys was amazing and downright scary when he struck this pose for me. I could see him in the cast of The 100 very easily
I loved this lady and again I could see her in the cast of The 100.
Pet dragons were for sale, and they were cute and cuddly. Thanks goodness they will not grow into the size of the three in Game of Thrones.
When I think of the Grim Reaper I am not sure it is with a violin in his hands.
However, he had a captive audience…
And his buddies were hanging out…
I am not sure – maybe Viking times, but potentially Roman times. However, the guys certainly appreciated them.
Vikings were at peace with the local gentry.
A quick snap shot as this falconer walked by with his falcons to get ready for their show.
Again I am guessing Viking period. I definitely love the feather effect.
It was time to relax and enjoy a cold beer and listen to Celtic Mayhem. I have heard this group for 3 years now and it is worth every mouthful of the $10 beer to be able to sit and listen to them.
I loved his pointy shoes…
The stories they told through there songs were captivating and so so enjoyable.
And yes there were Knights ….
And Robin Hood characters
And beautiful ladies…
And amazingly different horses.
In fact horses that I could not take my eyes off…Just incredible in their routine.
There were those who took a quick nap..
And those who were so raucous that there was definitely no napping happening there. A game of bingo perhaps..
There were those who told stories, drawing you in, feeding your mind of tales gone by.
And those that could not hang out in the days gone by. At least there apparently was a way of communicating in those days.
Ladies of character walked the streets reminding the young ladies to act with deportment.
And then there were just some very interesting characters, just not sure what era he belonged to.
And last of all was my favorite character, the Court Jester.
