Hot, humid, a chance of rain - let's go to a reenactment!
Yes, you read the title of the post correctly; I am going to a reenactment this weekend even though the weather seems less than ideal. It's our annual trek to Fort Macon to take part in a weekend-long living history program sponsored by the 1st NC Volunteers/11th NC Troops. We'll have about 7 guys this weekend, interpreting the US and CS navies, as well as the US Marines in the waters in and around Beaufort Harbor and Fort Macon. This is always a nice event, but this weekend looks to be very hot and humid, with chances for thunderstorms both days. Could be interesting. As one of my friends once said, "It's against my religion to go reenactin' in the summer." Funny thing is, he'll be there this weekend too. So, if you happen to be on the Crystal Coast of North Carolina this weekend, come on down to Fort Macon. The program runs 10-4 both Saturday and Sunday, and there will be plenty to see.
