So we headed off to a place called Elora, hadn't been in years and it's very pretty, but boy was it chilly, and then most places were closed? Anyhow, there is a big river with a gorge and a mill on the river. Here is a couple photos of the river, notice the ice!!
There is a small 'mall" with half a dozen stores in there, and I took this photo of how they decorated the where the windows of the building.......
We then decided to head to St. Jacobs, where there are a lot of Amish and Mennonite families. This is an Amish farm but look what they have:
Not sure what I am talking about, here is a close up:
They are obviously harnessing the wind, and believe me it was flying around when we passed by.
Picked up this little chap, it's a boot cleaner:
And you can't go to St. Jacobs and not call into Picard's Peanuts:
So of course I HAD to buy something, so got these:
I am quite sure they are both fat and calorie free?
On the way back home we passed by this:
I know you're not supposed to take photo's of them, so that is why I took it from the back.
When we were first in Elora we called into an antique store and I saw this bowl. The guy reduced by $20 for me to $65. I wasn't too sure about it, but on the way home I decided to call back in and bought it. It is called Waterlily, and features Lotus and Poinsettia flowers, it is a 9 1/2 inch footed bowl. However I have ran into a problem as all bowls seem to be 10 inches and there is a chop bowl that looks like mine that is 11 inch and is worth a small fortune, like $4,500......shame mine isn't it!!
All in all we had a super day and wished it could have been longer as we didn't get to see as much as we would have. The only downside of the day was a stone flew up from a passing car and chipped dh's windscreen on the truck. Otherwise we had a lovely day....
