Merlin meetup report  
The day was both bright and rainy but there was lots to do. Only one brave member showed up - hi unavee! (dame_margaret was also there but working in the SCA tent) but a couple of my friends (who are big fans of Merlin) and both my kids came to the Cloisters Medieval Festival. It was great. Lots of horse-riding, sword-fighting, costumes, food (the steak on a stick was great as were the cupcakes!) and just fun hanging around friends with lots in common.

We even talked about Merlin.

I stayed until the very end with my older daughter and as we watched the jousting, it got real. Two of the 'knights' got thrown from their horses at separate times. One person was limping but okay. The other one got up but went with the EMT people. Just goes to show that even people who are well trained can get hurt.

Anyway, here are some pictures of the day.

I want this costume.
