Torlyon Winter Fest,
When in Canberra for a wedding, we travelled to Torlyon (our first visit , if you dont count Festival) for the Winter Feast, to farewell Baldwin the Wanderer who is moving to the Crescent Isles (NZ). We travelled with Belinda and her husband and Mistress Marit. The Baron and Baroness of Politarchopolis was in attendance.
Above are some of the feast revellers...
