Storm King and Ft Tryon Medieval Festival

Had a very good summer, the weather was not too hot, and there was much going and September was especially fun. 

I visited Storm King Art Center the size and expanse of the grounds is incredible, wear your best walking shoes, or ride the trolley, it is definitely worth visiting.  I expected to see Giants come stomping out of the forest or Jacks bean stalk climbing to the clouds.






Ft Tryon Medieval Festival


I had the pleasure of serving as a volunteer at the annual Ft Tryon Medieval Festival in the costume tent, it was fun helping the vendors choose their costumes, and learned how to make a simple medieval headbands, using ribbon.  The USA Knights armored combat put on a good show, the sword fights were convincingly real.
 




To top off my day I had the opportunity of visiting the Cloisters again located at Ft Tryon Park.  The tranquility is nice, even with the crowds that were milling about you still get a sense of peace.
