Canterbury Renaissance Faire

I convinced Hubby to take me out to my first Renaissance fair a few weeks ago in Silverton, OR. The day was beautiful and the temperature was just right! I wish I could say that I had a great time but I just found the whole experience to be...well...weird. I can't really explain it any other way. The venue was strange (not their normal location), the people were odd, and it had more of a swap meet vibe than a fair or festival. I am not against attending a different one in the future, but I think I will stick to comic book/sci-fi conventions, that's the kind of weird I understand!
