We had a good time. We saw some neat shows - Celtic musicians, pirate comedy, fire eaters, and sea shantey-singing pirates (lostsatyr even got some of their CDs to take home with us.

We also got some nice stuff to bring home with us - blueberry honey, some honey sticks (they had ginger honey - yee!), some pretty pewter light switch plates (one with faeries, one with dragons and two with knotwork) and some lovely scented soap.

I also got myself a new necklace and a parasol (though I think lostsatyr liked the parasol too - he was quite taken with the shade!).

The Pittsburgh Faire is not as large as the Maryland or Pennsylvania Renn Faires, but that makes it easier to get around, too.

Oh! I also learned about how to shoot a bow properly, which will be good if I do decide to take lessons (yes, I'm thinking about it). Even though I don't think I'll be able to afford a bow while we're here...maybe after I go back to work....

I did manage to get a few pictures before the camera battery died, and lostsatyr took more - we just need to remember to get them off his phone when we get home.

So, we're having a good time here. :)

I always wondered how much fun archery might be. The closest I ever got was a guy at uni who was on the archery team, and he showed me his bow one day. (That's not a euphemism. It really was a bow.) I think I'm too short, though.

There's a Korean monster movie called "The Host" where one of the humans is an Olympic archer, and she's pretty awesome. The movie is pretty damn cool, too.

Is the Pittsburgh faire near Penn State? I've always wondered what else Pitt has....

I used to be an archery director at a Cub Scout camp, so I've seen bows sized for smaller people. You'd just have to find the right sized bow with the right draw strength for you.
