Since I had such a nice, relaxing day yesterday, today was the day for some action. So, BJ and I, along w/a couple friends, headed to the Renaissance Festival in Deerfield Beach. Now, if you have never been to this before, the two best things are the food and the people watching...and we got to enjoy plenty of both!
Some highlights were the Joust, this cool drum group (totally kicked ass), the Barely Balanced Acrobats and this guy who made a sandwich solely with his feet then had an audience member eat it-yummy! The people watching was spectacular, too. So many people dress up for this that sometimes it was hard to tell who was working there and who was just enjoying the festivities. Lots of little shops to buy all sorts of trinkets, swords, gowns, etc.
Today was the last day for it here in Florida so I'm glad we caught it before they hit the road. Weather was perfect although I do notice I am a tad bit pink from all the outdoor time. Hopefully I will get a nice base tan out of it.
Good times...maybe next year I'll wear a costume. Hmmm...all the choices....
