Photos of 2018 Lysts on the Lake, by Winfield of PaxLair
I, Winfield, went to Lysts on the Lake for my first time this year (2018). I will DEFINITELY be there in 2019! This was a once-in-a-lifetime experience, and I want another.
I got there early as people were still setting up (I sneaked in offering I was just a poor fisherman).
Horses, the horses! They were so gorgeous! Strong, spirited, ready for action!
Squires and Knights getting ready, practicing, preparing their armour. Fabulous!
I was lost in another time, another era, where chivalry reigned and people walked and talked with dignity and respect. No, they were not play-acting or role-playing. I met real professionals in the art of Jousting. Huzzah!
As I wandered around, I talked with anyone I could. I took many pictures. By the end of the event two days later, I felt I had made 25 new friends! And I shall see them again next year!
My friends, I am certain 2019 Lysts on the Lake will be magical. It will be held April 26-28, 2019. We can’t stay on Lord British’s property that weekend, but we can stay in hotels nearby. Evenings are pretty open after the Jousting, so we can do a lot that weekend.
I look forward to seeing everyone in April at the Lysts! Huzzah!
