Ok....gorgeous balls of fibre from Spinning Moon Farm....I've been having a ball spinning... Love the fibre prep and enjoyed meeting and talking with Edie at the Festival. Hope she'll join us at Fiber in the Boro next year.
Ok.....so you already know I love Ontario and all the little towns.....now Havelock isn't postcard perfect, but there is a rail yard......lots of track.....a caboose....a few engines.....and let's be honest, trains make the little monkey very happy, hence Kuma is very happy.
Ok....so this visit we all made it to the Roseneath Carousel...
"This Carousel was built in 1906 in Abilene, Kansas by C.W. Parker who was known as the king in he manufacture of amusement rides. It consists of 40 basswood horses, 3 abreast , and 2 metal boats. The centre row has Herschell/Spillman or Armitage/Herschell horses. The inside and outside rows have Parker Jumper Horses. It is balanced
from a centre post and is powdered by a 5 hp electric motor. Through a series of belts and clutches, it travels at approximately 4 miles per hour."
......of course we all had a ride, a laugh and a wonderful afternoon.
Ok....so I love Ontario...the rolling hills, the lake, farms and animals, fog, apple harvest, corn harvest and.....a pristine view of the Milky Way.... Of course, the fact that my little man is there, doesn't hurt one bit.
Ok....so Frankenmuth is a little Bavarian town in Michigan that we used to visit a lot as kids. It's been a long time since I've been, but Rick has renewed my interest because of a lovely little olive oil shop and Tiffany's....for the best Chicken Portabella Marsala Pizza....yum!!! Just a few shots of the covered bridge....lovely area.
Ok....when Jan and I had our lovely walk on the beach, we came across several wonderful additions....this beautiful sand castle village and so many nice people with dogs....needless to say the beach was lovely, the water beautiful and so calm.......much fun to enjoy!
