Knot Spots: July 15, 2017

Spotted: Centennial Pier, Port Alberni, BC

Okay, we knew that Port Alberni is a bit behind the times, but 1810?

It was windy and overcast on the afternoon of July 15, but that didn’t deter 286 historically minded folk from trying for a new Guinness World Record in the category of Most People Dressed in Regency Costume at an Event. Although they didn’t set a new record, the participants at the Port Alberni Jane Austen Festival had the pleasure of mingling with scores of other well-dressed gentlefolk, an opportunity that so seldom presents itself in these lamentably casual modern times.

  1. HEY! Exactly the same thing happened to me. I was traveling in June to Scotland, sent off 10 postcards to Canada using “a special stamp for postcards to be sent internationally” and they all arrived some 2 months later with exactly the same postmark.

    I sent off another 10 postcards from England with regular stamps, and they arrived promptly.
