Vintage Baseball

Hubby and I went to Georges Island outside Boston Saturday, and spent an enjoyable few hours wandering the grounds of Fort Warren, and watching some vintage baseball. Teams from Massachusetts and Maine competed in games using the same rules (and equipment) used during the Civil War.

Travel Theme: Costume

This week, bloggy friend Ailsa over at Where’s My Backpack has chosen “costumes” as her theme for the week. I went literal, so here are some of my favorite costumes from recent months.

Image

From Boston’s Make Way for Ducklings parade.

Image

Patriot’s Day re-enactors, taking their job very seriously.

Image

They also take their costume details very seriously.

Image

I have no idea what was going on here. This was the Caribbean Carnival in Mattapan last summer.

Image

After a zombie run in Boston. Do zombies run? I thought they sort of lumbered …

Also, linky goodness to one of my favorite photos from the zombie run, a person in a Jesus costume (because “Jesus was the first zombie!” he said).
