We were in Maine yesterday, Johann and Glady and Cedar. I had a face painting gig in Kittery, and took the kids so we could have some fun afterward. About 11:15 am, when I was done with the even, we piled in the truck and headed for Fort McClary on Kittery Point to let the kids burn off some energy and see the ocean. It was in the low fifties, and overcast, so I didn’t want them to go in the water. I was expecting the Fort to be deserted, so when we pulled in and the parkinglot was overflowing I wondered what was going on. Turns out we had stumbled upon a French and Indian War encampment. Dad re-enacts as a member of Roger’s Rangers, so we got all excited. I called Dad, who was green with envy. We spent a couple of hours exploring and talking to people and letting Johann run amuck in the Fort and rocks surrounding it. Finally, we got to watch a mock Battle between the British and Scottish troops on one side and the French and Indians on the other. The French were camped on the hill above with the Indians, and they also arrived from Marseilles aboard a jolly boat that had a nifty little cannon. I actually shot some video of the battle, which you can see here.
Glady had the camera through most of our adventure, so some of these shots were taken by her.
