Viking summer vacation

I came here only to find out that I completly forgot to post pictures of our viking summer vacation in (Pre)Historisch Dorp Eindhoven. As I came here to share the pictures of our Viking weekend in Archeon everyone who like the early middle ages is in for a treat! And for those of you who are interested in the Victorian era, don't worry I am working on a Victorian Gents Chesterfield coat. More about that tomorrow!

Skipping stones with the daughter of friends.

This year we didn't go on a "normal" vacation
but being here for four days made us feel like we had been away 
for two weeks.

The scenery is idyllic.

The atmosphere is relaxed.

and the company wonderful.

Making fire the authentic way.

Sewing a new leather pouch.

As our later medieval group is called De Zwarte Zwaan 
(The Black Swan) it is always kinda special to meet them.

I am running out of time, so the pictures of the Archeon will have to wait
 till this evenening or maybe tomorrow.
