We had a great weekend of riding and eating too much wonderful food at our Tilbury Encampment. Anne Marie, Guillaume and Anissa joined us with enough food for an expeditionary army to Flanders, we set up camp in the grass overlooking our "tiltyard" and had at it. Taxi and Woody had a grand time playing with quintains, cabbage "heads" we sliced with swords and cabbage "pigs" that we pierced with lances. And we ate a LOT. The chickens were happy with their scraps, and the cats thought that tenting in the back yard was a great idea. Here you can see me on Woody hitting the shock quintain, while Guillaume and Taxi are about to smack the revolving quintain a good one! We'll have to do this again in a couple of months!
