I went to the Michigan Renaissance Festival with my mom and sister on Sunday. It was a really nice day, cool but comfortable, slightly overcast with patches of sun, crisp air, wonderful colors around. It was lovely. We were able to get in free thanks to the kindness of a stranger outside the gate with extra tickets, and really only paid for food. We walked around a lot, looked in some of the shops, and caught a couple shows from Flight of the Raptor.
We also watched a street performer... ;)
visited the petting zoo...
watched children ride a camel!...
pretended we were royalty... ;)
and saw a seahorse.
We had to park in the overflow parking, but had a really nice little walk through a little grassy, wooded area.
It was a really nice day. :) And a wonderful start to fall.
