English Civil War Re-enactment :)

We were in Weymouth over the weekend to meet family and friends, and after lunch with Y’s friend we were walking along the seafront and saw a crowd gathering on the beach.

We went over to have a look, and they were just setting up to start a civil war re-enactment >.>

It was very good timing for us to arrive though, we were able to stand right at the front near the small cannon, and big matchlock gun :D

The costumes looked really good, and it was fun to watch ^^

They fired their guns and the cannon a lot, and had mock sword fights between the opposing sides fighting for either King, or Parliament.

The guns were pretty loud, and the echo passing in and out of the ribbed wall nearby sounded like a racing car hehe.
