October 1st: Plumbata training
the last watch for this season. The pictures don't show
it, but we had such heavy rain at times that it forced us
down from the top floor! The tower is leaking quite a bit
September 3rd: Legio X Gemina at the tower
August 27th: Corbvlo at the tower
August 20st: Summer or what?
Well, those pictures say more than a thousands words, right? After a prolonged heatwave, we returned to the tower in high summer - well you could've fooled us us into thinking it was october! Heavy rain that forced us inside, hardly any visitor at all but for a few brave souls that had gotten on their bike or in their car. Add to that several thunderstorms..
But there were some sunny spells, bringing a few interested people and giving us time to shoot some pictures. Anyway, we were never bored. Finally we had some time to act like real guards, with endless hours of waiting and patrolling on our hands. We discussed equipment and other important things, and ate far more of our rations that we usually get the chance to do!
Jeroen was never bored, even though the rain was so heavy at times it forced us inside. Running around, practising his sword arts, he always seems to enjoy himself here. Must be a real Roman inside..
