Gustafs Skål's members heartily participates in the event on weekends and show off themselves, 18th century dances, arrange fashion shows and so on, very much to the tourists' delight.
This year was the first time I participated and in spite of the hot, hot HOT weather (seriously, my shift was soaking when I got it off.. Sorry for TMI) I had a lovely day.
There weren't too many fixed arrangements for this day, so my task was mostly to walk around like any other Skansen-goer (only in 18th c clothing, of course), answering the odd question from tourists, smiling for cameras and enjoying the company of the many nice Gustafs Skål members.
I could so do this every day for the rest of my life!
The activities are mainly focused around this building, Skogaholm manor.
I couldn't find my camera when I left home (I slept late and was a bit panicked) so I had to take stealth shots with my phone. A lot of them were so stealthy that I mostly got people's backs ! Oh well.
One would think that it would be cool and nice in this lovely... corridor of shrubbery, but it was quite the reverse.
Last but not least - me! I had planned to wear something new but there wasn't time (you may remember this old rag from last summer). I hope to have finished a brand new round-gown for the upcoming weekend. Then I will also try to take more and better pictures, including the lovely interiors of Skogaholm manor.
