Easter re-enactments

My home smells of lemon and garlic and cumin because I'm marinating lamb strips overnight. You know that means I've got a few days to myself, right? *g*

Had the most wonderful trip away this Easter. There's a pine forest just outside Armidale where a local Dark Ages group holds biennial Gatherings. Since 1992(!) Actually there was one in 1990 that got rained out, but a few silly fools *g* made it to that one anyway, and some of us count it as a kind of unofficial first.

I've been doing 17th century for the last decade and a half and haven't been to a Gathering for years. I couldn't stay for all of it - curse you, real life! - but what I did experience made me feel terribly nostalgic for the old days. Beautiful site and lovely, welcoming people.

Here have some photos:
