This year I have been very lucky to get away for the weekend more then normal. I have always been someone that love to travel but more often then not they are much larger trips that require careful planing and coin in the bank. Something has changed this year and I find I am on smaller trip more and more.
Myself and His Lordship like to get in the car and take trips. As I write this we have just gotten back from an over night at a friends cottage. We drove up late and when we stepped out of the car both of us stopped to look at the stars. The day was spent swimming and reading by the lake. Lunch was a large communal affair with everyone pitching in. (well almost I was told to move a little out of the way, though to be fair you don’t want to eat my cooking…but I helped clear up after) and we sat down together. Sure we had a modern touches, but as for the motions themselves? It’s easy to think of the settlers in a free moment going for a dip. A city Lady up for the air reading her book, and all of them looking at the stars one clear night. As for lunch I think that’s an easy one to imagine folks doing. Something sort of wild to be able to drive out of the city and step into the past even if it is just the view.
As we drove home its was very easy to look back and see how full this summer has been! I have to say that Red Coats A Regency Wonderland, has been a great deal of help. Take a look, (they are on our blog roll) they offer info on all sorts of historic events. I hope they keep up the good work. They make time travel easy.
If you have been following us you may have read the re-caps of some of the fun Spencerville and Crysler’s Farm have both been blogged about. However I go back and read them and it always feels like I have left so much out. Maybe we just know how to really pack a full trip. Sooooo many full trips this year.
I would like to put a question out to folks reading this:
Did you go away and tap in with the past?
It could be something big like reenactment or something small like reading an old book. Post below and let us know if you time traveled this summer.
