First, you have to pretend it’s still summer and the air is still warm. Once you feel the warmth, come back with me to the Regency period with a performance by The Commonwealth Vintage Dancers at the Salem Maritime Festival back in August. The day was cloudy, but not too warm, and was interrupted mid-afternoon by a bit of strong rain (during which many of our dancers had wandered off and I sat under a tree and watched the rain fall).

Beautiful photos! Your dress looks adorable!
Oh how beautiful your dress is! It looks like you all had a very delightful day! The kites look so fun and I would have been one of those helping to untangle the mess! hahahahaha!! Thank you for the pictures and the chance to imagine a nice warm summers day!
Lovely photos. That looks like a nice day. And no need to imagine the warmth for me. It’s still very much summer weather here in Las Vegas!
Gorgeous!!! Looks like such a fun event, and I love your kites!
Thanks! I appreciated your post about Georgian toys that included kites when I was making them. 🙂
That looks like such fun event with all the dancing and entertainment (including the untangling of the kites)
Thank you very much for sharing the photos.
What a fabulous event! Love the dancing on the lawn!
Once again your group has shown a slice of life from another era and you all looked wonderful!
What a lovely looking event! I’m so envious of your dance group and all the things you get to go to. There is so little here!
That photo of you untangling kite strings is spectacular – it looks like a movie still!
Ooo, thanks! It is such an amazing blessing to be so near a group that regularly hosts these lovely events. I wish everyone could come to them! Despite not having formal events nearby, I do love your photo shoots and stories. They express lots of creativity!
