The annual Battle of Secessionville Reenactment at Boone Hall is a favorite event.
This year we only went up for the day.
The ladies tea at the Cotton Dock was a treat.
The ladies donned their best dresses.
Delicious food awaited us all.
There was even a cannon ball:).
Sunrays streamed through the windows...
as some stitched...
and others played.
A wonderful presentation about wrappers was given.
One of her creations...
inspired by this mid 19th century wrapper.
After the tea hubby and I enjoyed a beautiful day on the dock.
Then it was time for lunch-homemade flat bread-yummm!
(and yes it's worth every bite even though my corset doesn't allow me to eat it all:).
Musical entertainment during lunch.
A little shopping...
and a little stopping to watch the troops march by.
After all of the excitement I decided to rest a bit in the shade of ancient oaks,
while hubby strolled through the gardens.
It was a bit bright so he borrowed my parasol:).
Then it was time to return home...
and think about having some supper.
