A Step Back in Time

This time of year I love to take a drive to the  Scarborough Renaissance Festival in Waxahachie, Texas.    We went earlier this year and I am glad we did.  It wasn’t so crowded and the temperatures were much cooler.   The Renaissance Festival is like a step back in time.  There are demonstrations of all kinds that show how things were made long ago.  For example, there is glassblowing, candle making, and blacksmiths forging swords.
