After our walk, we had a short break to fill our empty bellies, and then we made our way into the castle field to enjoy the activities of the fiesta.
Our first encounter was a group of stormtroopers who were more than happy to point a gun at you for a photograph. Wonder if Darth Vader knew what his staff got up to in their spare time 😉
There were some fairground rides to test your stomach on, I was quite happy to watch.
In a quiet corner of the field we found a World War II re-enactment group. They were a great bunch of guys who were more than happy to answer any questions about this historical event. As I am particularly interested in this era I was chatting to them for ages. They were telling me that although a lot of the uniforms etc were replicas, they also had a lot of kit, in particular the guns that were genuine Second World War items. It always fills me with a sense of intrigue when faced with an object from history and how it has survived the test of time; my imagination runs wild. I start to wonder who was the original owner of that item? What was life like for them back then? What hardship and sacrifices did they endure? So many questions that I will only ever know a fraction of the answers to.
