Sinclair Inn Museum 300th Anniversary Party - Part 1

As the saying goes, into each life some rain must fall. Unfortunately, that rain has chosen to start mere minutes before one of our events twice this week. No matter, both events went well and those who braved the elements had some fun. Today's rain soaked event was the Sinclair Inn Museum's 300th anniversary party. While a couple of our demonstrators were cancelled due to the weather, we were able to move much of the event inside the museum. Thankfully the rain held off long enough that the bagpipers could stay outside because three sets of pipes in the museum may have deafened everyone in attendance.

The day included a visit from Annapolis Royal's circa 1710 Queen Anne (complete with Lady in Waiting, Footmen, horse and carriage). Evidently I am to call them Footmen rather than henchmen despite the fact that I think the Queen herself would be amused at having henchmen. After her majesty cut the cake, we ducked out of the rain to enjoy Jeanne (Doucette) Currie's singing. It was nice to hear Acadian music being sung in the oldest standing Acadian built house. While lots of feet were tapping, I do not think we did any damage to the structure.

The photographs in this post show some of the activities which were happening around the museum. Since I took a great number of pictures, I will share some additional images in tomorrow's post.

All for now,
