This past October, I went to the Holly Point Nature Center's Art & Seafood Fest in Deltaville. Honestly, what prompted me to go was the promise of a living history group know as Blackbeard's Pirates. The Brat Child is a pirate fanatic.

because BC needs to know the proper way to work a sword.

My mother and I were pleasantly surprised at the number of vendors and at the quality of their wares. It was a warm but not hot day, and though it was well attended, the set up gave plenty of room to walk around and browse. I purchased a nice flounder wineglass and some character inspired ice cream. I also found a very cool iron flying pig key or business card holder (everyone needs one).
Mom bought a parrot wineglass.
There were pony rides, interesting things made from metal and a train display (BC is also a huge train fanatic).

It was a gorgeous day and one of the best weekends I've had.
Can't wait to go again in 2011.
I need some more flounder glasses.
