Here's a gentleman actor in the middle of a scene. I didn't notice it before, but the bird mask reminds me of the masks the renaissance doctors used to wear to ward off the plague when treating patients. My youngest daughter just told me that the doctors used to pack the metal beak with strong smelling and sweet herbs to protect themselves. I didn't know that! Cool! Whatever works!
And of course, one can't forget one's remembrances and snacks. Vendors roamed the streets selling sourdough pretzels, candied nuts, pickles, and bananas and beef jerky. The girls particularly enjoyed watching the latter vendor because she wore a bunch of bananas on her head! Of course, there was also a flower girl.
Here's one of my favorites! A caterpillar! He's such a riot.
Oh, and look, Matt got this great shot at the jousting tournament. The girls know it's all staged, but enjoy it nonetheless. Although they did mention that they liked watching the caber toss last year as it was a real competition--that's when hefty men dressed in kilts toss telephone poles.
