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.
Look at that sky!
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!
Practicing before the big lawn party!
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.
Me want it!
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.
