Queen's Birthday weekend this year saw three intrepid travellers from Ildhafn head down to the Darton Collegate.
Thanks to the kindness and forethought of Lady Elanor Hall hiring a car.... both Ludwig and I were plucked from the airport and whisked away to two days of learning interesting things, and spending time with new and old friends.
There were a range of A and S classes offered where people could try their hand at bookbinding, fingerloop braiding, singing, perfume making and many other things besides.
We were lucky enough also to have a special visitor from the Barony of Rowany, Mistress FilippaGinevra Francesca di Luciganano - who shared her knowledge and expertise to all without reservation.
There was some good fighting done on the Sunday and the wind kept us on our toes urging us to fight more just to stay warm!
The feast on the Saturday night headed by Master Stefano da Urbino was beautiful and it was so lovely to see so many new people trying the SCA for the first time down there.
Thank you to everyone involved, it was a good two days enjoyed by all.
