The Craney Island Bicentennial weekend continued with an 1813-era church service and a wreath-laying ceremony honoring War of 1812 veterans buried at St. Paul's Episcopal Church in Norfolk.
I had worn my new apron-front gown to the ball the evening before, so it needed to be pressed again. I wore it with my straw-brimmed bonnet, a cream sash, and my cockade from the ball.
Lovely ladies dressed for church:
Chatting in the pews before the service:
|I was teasing Jackie that her camera was the same color as her bonnet. :p|
|Such a pretty church!|
|Mrs. Madison was again in attendance.|
|The Daughters of the War of 1812 had helped organize the ceremony.|
Laying the wreaths:
|Listening to "Taps"|
|I loved his cane.|
|It's made of wood from the USS Constitution!|
|Chatting around the punch bowl|
|Obligatory shoe shot! I count three Pemberlies. :p|
