What-What?! Week of July 15th

I was gonna post this last week, but totally forgot what day it was, what week it was, what year it was...

On 4th of July weekend, we hit up the beach at Kayak Point for a picnic:

The sand here has so many rocks.  Makes me miss the sandy beaches back home.

Busy with construction!

Handsome husband <3

Looking for good stuff in the water.  The water here is very clear and nearly still during the times that the wind was low.

You can see in this picture that someone forgot they were standing in water when they crouched down...

Burying Corwin in the sand

It was a good time!

What-What?! Week of June 24th

A few weeks ago, we went to the SCA event called Boars Hunt.  One of the main festivities is people hunting various 'animals' (who are also people), using their hunting dogs (also people).  Unfortunately, we didn't get to see any of that event, but we did get to spend a bunch of time in the cook's camp, in the family area, and generally just hanging out.

The forest around the area is beautiful, though that day was rainy, making it incredibly muddy.  By the time we headed home, Osric's clothes looked like he'd rolled in it.  My boots are still not quite the same.

The husband uploaded pictures of the event here.

One of the last things that happened during the day was the evening court.  The husband was recognized for his volunteer work at a previous event, and was inducted into the Order of the Silver Dolphin, receiving both a handmade certificate and a pendant (picture of the pendant can be seen here).
