Living the Victorian Life-Archery

This weekend at the Battle of Brattonsville I took up a new sport, archery.
I had a wonderful instructor who was very knowledgeable and extremely patient. 
I never would have thought I would enjoy archery as much as I did and now I am hooked!
Archery was an acceptable and popular sport for Victorian ladies.


  1. Oh, that's cute! Those pictures remind me of one of my Victorian calling cards, it has a lady archer on it.
    Have a great rest of your week,

  2. very lovely lady to be so accomplished. I am in envy.
