Estrella 2013!

So, this was our third Estrella War event and really the first one we got to relax, take pictures and just have an all around great time. Our first war, in 2011, was blown away by the great dust storm of 2011, our second was so stinkin' hot that one pretty much hid in the shade the entire time.

And without further ado......... here we have some pictures of the characters participating at Estrella this year.

Roger, ready for the day.

Rachelle and Brenda heading for Merchants. Brenda needs a hat!

Lord William and Alora. Alora created the beautiful braid in Will's hair. It lasted for a couple of days. And as we all know, it's all about the hair!

On the Eve of War.......

Lord William has granted me admin privileges to post to the Land of Lochridge blog, in hopes of getting some more pictures and stories of our SCA adventures and creations posted. For now I am Rachel of Lochridge, (Lord William's mom), but that could change as I develop a persona, just haven't found the time to do that yet.

Here we are on the Eve of Estrella War; Roger McKean and I, along with Chili Bitch and Eyegore,  will be heading out tomorrow to begin setting up our encampment, in anticipation of Lord William's and the other  St. Felicians (sp?). Looking forward to a week in the Middle Ages. Should have many pictures and stories to regale you with next week.
