Fort Ross

Cooking in our outdoor kitchen!
We cut up beets, carrots, onions and potatoes all day long!

The Kuskov house where we slept on the second floor.

A better view of our "kitchen."

Binky in his hunter outfit.
Love the hat!

The chapel.
After dinner, we walked in silence with out candles to the chapel for
some beautiful Russian music played by some students.

Goose(far left) aka Unitma, and some fellow Fort Ross employees.

And our final hour was spent watching the militia fire the cannon!
Very cool!

I have to say this was a very cool trip!
Exhausting, but so cool!
I learned so much about this Fort and time period.
Like, it wasn't actually a Fort, but more of a settlement.
While we were there, some real Russian tourists visited the Fort and
really enjoyed seeing all the kids in their roles.
This was our first living history trip and I
couldn't have enjoyed myself more!
I know the kids had a great time.
Binky wants to go back next year.  Maybe with Daddy this time!
