Irony....

We have some amazing castles in America, don't we?!?!? Hahaha... SO, as we pulled up to park at Caernarfon Castle, the parking lot and streets were filled with more than just 'tourist' types. We just happened to come on the day the town celebrates Veterans Day. Not only did we get into the castle for free, but we got to talk to some cool people and see some great sights. There were reenactors, different arms of the military, veterans, horses, an old WWII American Jeep (hence this flag) and even a moon bounce.

    My buddies. While talking to these reenactors, I mentioned that this year started celebrations along the Chesapeake Bay, of the War of 1812. Ha...thus started a very lively and fun spirited 'discussion' about who REALLY won the war. These guys were awesome.

    Which branch of the service deployed the Moon bounce? :) I must have missed that training.;-)
    I love the town clerk with a camera around his neck.

    Great set of images, Andrea! I love the shot of the two guys with the cannon especially, and the shot of the person dressed in period costume while texting with the camera around her neck is hilarious!
