"An awkward amount of twenty-first century bosoms stuffed into sixteenth century bodices..." was how the Maryland Rennaisance Festival was once described. See for yourself! Nate and I went for our second year, this bringing a post-utero Mayumi. We had a BLAST--people watching, mostly, but thoroughly enjoyed the entertainment, fabulous weather, and excellent craftsmanship. See the pictures below--"ask a hermit" (seated on the ground), "Madame Blainsworth" (crazy hat, making eyes at Mayumi), "The Rogues" (a fabulous Scottish bagpipe/drum/fiddle ensemble in the background of the picture featuring a held-up Mayumi), "cursing well" (with Nate making his best 'mad face'), k-nig-ets jousting, and plenty of wenches. A fabulous day!
