Cue dragons, art, great scenery, good walking, frost and ice, mists and blazing sunshine, good food and beer, excellent cheer, and an enthusiastic medieval banquet with lively debate spanning the centuries including King Richard III re-found(*), all wrapped up in St Briavels undefeated castle lost up on high in the evening mist…
I think we can all agree that made for a most excellent weekend, all starting with our just desserts! 😉
One to be revisited! Many thanks to Kate for organizing.
( *: Little did the Banquet Master realize our innocuous connections with Leicester, nor the depth of some historic knightly research by Liz connecting some past characters of the castle… 😉 Quite a fun real-life history lesson and engrossing debate! 😛 Note also the modern day trappings that old Richard must now endure: Visit Leicester: Richard III; and King Richard III Visitor Centre; and a week of posthumous pageantry for the Richard III reburial – ‘May you rest in peace in Leicester’, and finally(?) King’s tomb unveiled at Leicester Cathedral. )
