GLOW at the Triangle L Ranch 12-OCT-2019 in Oracle, AZ

[14 October, 2019, Oracle, AZ, US]

Visited my dad, uncles, aunts and more in Oracle, AZ from the 10th to the 14th of October in Oracle. Went to GLOW, which is held by the Triangle L Ranch.com every year in the fall.

The event features artwork of all kinds dotted along multiple paths in the desert all within the Triangle L Ranch. There are several spots that have musicians playing esoteric music. There is also food and non-alcoholic drinks for sale at the event. It used to be one night a year but it got so crowded, it was split into four event days (with different themes) with limited tickets, so that you don’t get stuck in a huge swaths of people, making it more enjoyable to stroll from point to point.

Maryland Ren Faire Sep 10 2017

[September 10 2017 Maryland, US]

So, okay, I don’t even recall which city this was in. Went with Joel and Miriam Bader, Joel driving.

Took a few pictures. Should have taken more. Oh well 🙂 The grounds were huge. I used to go to the Bristol Renaissance Faire in Wisconsin (south of Milwaukee near the Illinois border). Size wise, I’d say it was at least twice as big I think? It’s all circular so I may have misjudged the size. Anyway, it was a day of fun! Click on the pic or link below for more pictures:

Another Adventure – Colchester, UK with Paula and World

[June 26, 2017 through July 4, 2017 Colchester, UK]

SO, Over the years, I go to London and meet up with Paula and World (not his real name) in London. So I thought it would be good to go meet them where they live – in Colchester. About an hour away by train from central London…

So Colchester is to the east of London. I also circled Penzance which has nothing to do with this current story but I thought it would be cool to visit since it’s all the way “at the end” of England. And yes, that’s where the “Pirates of Penzance” by Gilbert and Sullivan occur…

But I digress. So here are the pictures from flight (outgoing via AA Boeing 787), my visit to Sherlock Holmes by Charring Cross (of course as usual, etc.), my stay this time at the InterContinental by O2 (that’s oh-two, not zero-two) and of course pics at Colchester and there was a Colchester festival going on, a few pics are from there… Sorry I didn’t annotate the pics well this time.
