This May I went to a small and cozy weekend event outside Stockholm, to watch the Majgreve tournament and meet with new and old friends. It was such a nice event, the weather was perfect and the site beautiful.
Wow, what a site! Don’t you want to go for a swim?
During Saturday, everyone hanged outside by the lake, having lunch picknick-style, playing or chatting with each other.
The fighters got hot; so they continued to practice in the lake.
I also got too hot, and decided for a swim in the lake. It was very cold, but very nice! I didn’t take any bathing photos because of no swimwear, but look at how happy I was afterward!
I put up my shop on the grass and tempted children with stuffed horses and adults with shiny jewels. Works every time!
The jug sneaked around the bush, going on adventures of its own. Who owned it? Don’t know, but I know that it is based on a find of a medieval clay jug.

In the evening, tables was set outside by the shore and on the pier, and everyone enjoyed a pot-luck feast together!
And finally, some photos of fellow SCAdians! I always try to take some photos and/or portraits during events, to let you meet some of all the amazing people I get to meet during my adventures!
I had an amazing weekend, and really recommend you to visit a SCA event if you haven’t already, or to visit Majgreve next year if you live closer to Sweden and Stockholm!
