Texas Renfest . . .

Jan and I were up at 6:45am, and out the door by 7:30, to make the hour plus trip up to Brandi’s in Katy.

Then it was on up to Magnolia and the Texas Renaissance Festival.

Did some figuring and came up with the fact that we’ve been coming to the RenFest since 1979, five years after it started in 1974. What I didn’t realize is that the location is actually an old strip mine site, mining what I don’t know.

We paid the extra $10 for Preferred Parking which turned out to be well worth it. Because it comes with a shuttle that picks you up right at your car and takes you to the main entrance, and then back when you leave. Very nice. Especially when you’re really tired when you’re leaving.

And of course after entering the Faire it was time to eat. Jan got a Sesame Chicken On A Stick, and I got a Sausage On A Stick, and a Piña Colada. Very Good.

This weekend is Halloween at Renfest so we saw a lot of other costumes around, like Harry Potter, Wonder Woman, Alice and the Mad Hatter, and even a T-Rex.

One thing we always do here is to attend the Falconery Show.

Coming home we stopped off at the Friendswood Wal-Mart to pick up a prescription and a couple of grocery items. Then before leaving the parking lot, we got a couple of Coffee Milkshakes from the Whataburger to take home for supper. Our favorite.
