Gypsy Caravan Arrives – Bellydancers too?

European gypsies.  Middle-eastern gypsies.  American gypsies. They were everywhere I looked and all amassed in one place!

Okay, so I’m remiss in my sequence of storytelling.  The day began at Country Village in the city of Bothell, Washington, USA.  They have a delightful collection of old houses/shacks which positioned together, create themed retail storefronts.  In the middle of the cluster, one can find an outdoor “stage” of sorts with a large patio or “square” which turned out to be ideal for under-tent-seating on this 90F day.

The members of Somewhere in Time, Unlimited had gathered together for a picnic lunch followed by “gypsy dancing”.  Oh my!  I hadn’t seen such talent all in one afternoon anywhere else in the Seattle area.  Of course, I don’t go to Hemp Fest or other bellydancing sort of gatherings, but I did find it interesting none the less. 
Guests were also treated to traditional Flamenco dancing performed by fellow SITU member Miss Pippin.  The Event was organized by fellow bellydancer and SITU member Miss Marion.  She did an awesome job to bring everyone and everything, together.  Participants had a delightful, tho hot, afternoon!

Photos will be posted out on the regular website of SITU.  Click HERE to see photos of this event.

If you’d like to hook up with us for some other Event or Dress-up Opportunity, please let me know!  We’d love to have you come along!  See our Calendar if there might be something of interest to you….

Lady Victoria and husband Sir Harry of Essex (London), reside these days in picturesque Seattle, Washington USA. They interact with a number of vintage or antique groups, including the historical costuming group Somewhere in Time, Unlimited. Come, enjoy an afternoon with Lady V and Sir Harry!
