This weekend my friends and I went to the Florida Renaissance Festival. I have never been to one before, but have always wanted to go. We don’t have Renaissance Fairs at home because we had the real Renaissance instead! It was everything I had always hoped it would be. I was very sad that I couldn’t get a costume together in time, but I did buy a flower garland for my hair and an eye patch with an actual eye in it, so I managed to pull it off in the end. I met some fantastic people there, including my new friends Prunella and Eglantine Tawdry, the colourful sisters of Mug Bottom Village who helped me realise my Ren Fest potential! They are from the Cobblestone Characters who kept us entertained all day long!
I ate a giant turkey leg, drank ale, watched jousts and plays and even got a henna tattoo all while listening to the delightful sounds of The Lost Boys, who might be my new favourite band!
All in all, one of the best days of 2010 so far! Huzzah!!
