Alafia River Rendezvous

This is the 44th annual Alafia River Rendezvous, a period of time stuck in the era prior to the 1840's.  This is the second time we have had the opportunity to experience this encampment.  We got to see a blacksmith at work, a bagpiper, a potter, a quilter, Indians, tepees, flint lock guns, brass work, and  we got to see some of the campsites.  Our guide showed us his own personal campsite and shared his coyote pelt and I think it was a snowshoe hare pelt (but do not quote me on it).  When we went two years ago we got to see a tanner at work, a broom maker, and other artisans.  If you get the chance to go it is this weekend, Friday and Saturday.  It is worth the drive.  Here is a link: http://www.visitcentralflorida.org/events/alafia-river-rendezvous
