This was the first battle re-enactment that I have ever been to and I was fascinated.
I think the best part for me was the complete devotion of all the people involved. It's a great people watching event. I kept telling myself off for staring, but then realizing that they probably don't mind and would appreciate being appreciated for their costumes.
I found the families and the kids particularly amazing. Everyone was dressed up and seemed to be enjoying life outdoors-cooking, playing, knitting....
And the cannons and gunfire were pretty awesome too!
And don't get me started on the stunning horses.
I am guessing these guys have a great weekend hanging out together. Apparently there were 500 that turned up for each side. The camp looked huge and happening.
And then the best part:
I can't believe I missed this bit! I stepped back with the little man who was finding the "smells" a bit overwhelming.
