Once again Fort King George had a living history festival last week. Reenactors came from all over to spend the weekend and play their parts. This was a shot of part of the encampment.
This soldier was on duty. Notice the water bottle that was out of character, but hey, it was a warm day!
This guy was showing off his pistol.
This guy belonged to a blackpowder group. Their motto is "Save the Whiskey" he told me, translating the Celtic words on the sign. Kind of scary, if you ask me -- people imbibing around gunpowder!
And here they are in the dance itself.
Going into the fort itself, we find another bagpiper watched by some soldiers.
Also inside the stockade are these blacksmiths.
These people are cooking. The guy's actually cutting potatoes. The haggis was already done on the campfire.
This is a close-up of the lady sitting by the out-of-costume box.
And these soldiers were guarding the road as we wandered toward the exit.
All in all, a tiring but happy day!
