As promised, the first outing of the season

In honor of her majesty’s birthday, Shirley, Lottie and I headed out to Lower Fort Garry to enjoy the PERFECT costuming day!  The sun was out.  The sky was blue.  The air was warm and there was a slight breeze.  We missed the main rush of people so there was lots of room for photos.  PERFECT!

Lottie and I wore 1840’s and Shirley wore 1850’s.  Nothing new on either Lottie or myself but Shirley was sporting a knitted vest and a misers purse that she had made this past winter.

Here are a few of my favorite shots from my camera and Shirley’s.

Not a bad shot for a camera phone!

Shirley and I being patriotic!  I loved Shirley’s little basket of wool.

We all wanted photos next to the old wagon wheel by the blacksmith’s shop.

I loved how Lottie’s white dress contrasted with the grey wood.

I loved this staff person’s dress.  I don’t think she will love how her eyes look in this photo!  Hahaha…Sorry about that!

A game of trundling.

Gretel, dear, could you do an old lady a favor and peek in the oven and see what is in there.  A little further dear, if you would be so kind.

There was a display marking some of the Fort’s other uses once it was no longer needed as a Fort.  A prison, insane asylum and auto enthusiasts club were its former uses.
