Midsummer at the Mittlealter festival

Good mead at the Solstice fest

We had a great anniversary day yesterday – spent it out at a middle ages festival that was like a mini RenFest but with more alcohol and more children with weapons. We got some very fine mead in a stoneware bottle, reuasable as an oil lamp with the appropriate wick, for 12 euros and sat on the river bank watching gothlings flock and sipping it slowly. Mmm… excellent stuff. Good mead is like distilled sunlight.

There was a blessing ceremony of a newly built Viking river boat, a small demo combat, and then a long walk home along the riverbank. Six years. We may be perenially broke, but we’re rich in experiences.
