A Civil War Festival

 Don't you love the hoop skirt?

 The reenactors camped out for days at this site.



 A piper.

 Handmade baskets.

 The men were dressed in Civil War costumes.


 Hello girls!

You certainly do have a lot of festivals that are near enough to you to make the journey there possible. Lovely scenes from this one.

At least with a hoop skirt you don't have to worry about whether you have a big ass or skinny legs or something.

Did they have lots of llamas in the civil war :-) :-) :-)

We have nothing like that here even if we have been in war with Denmark and Norway most of the time since our countries was formed. I guess we're too close friends now days to want to remember any of those old battles.

Have a great day!

If nothing else I would not want to wear those dresses in the heat of the summer

Hoop skirts..what a great place to hide my big behind! Of course I love them! :)
What a great jump you have on Fall. today is our first real promise of Autumn..and we are so happy. The temp is predicted to not get above 73 degree's. I hope it's true. AND it is supposed to be that way all week.
Did you buy anything? Hmmm? I love your trips and the country you get to travel through is just amazing!
