Every June, the Mayor of Oakville hosts a historical picnic. As a Scottish country dancer and a long sword dancer, I am invited to be part of the entertainment. Last year I danced with both groups and found it pretty tiring. Also, Becky stayed home so I had to run back home as soon as I was done dancing. This year, Becky joined the festivities down by the shore of Lake Ontario.
It was a little cool and I was glad I had brought a blanket and fleeces.
The country dancers went on first, followed by the sword dancers. At last I am able to post a picture of me sword dancing as a couple of people were taking photos.
After all that hard work we tucked into the picnic. There was soooo much food. As we started to eat, it began to rain.
We soon had the park to ourselves, but we didn’t care and had our picnic anyway. It was a lovely afternoon despite the crummy weather. It’s always a good time when we spend it with our friends.
