The Hagerman House
As I mentioned the other day, Murray and I went to Kings Landing Historical Settlement on Friday afternoon. We spent several hours there on a beautiful autumn day and enjoyed walking in the fresh air with a brisk breeze, visiting the homes, the staff and taking lots of pictures.
We have had our Thanksgiving weekend which concluded with our turkey dinner Monday. Our son and his wife joined us and we had a delicious meal. I was stuffed! Really, you'd think I'd learn after all these years, but it was so good! We had a Skype visit with our Calgary family too and enjoyed the antics of our grandsons and seeing how the newest baby is growing.
I hope you enjoy the photos. Some of them have been edited a bit for colour as it was a washed out kind of day and the colours were more brilliant than my photos showed.
Kings Landing just finished it's 40th Anniversary season. I was there last week to see the exhibit of the anniversary in the Visitor Reception Building. The above photo was part of the exhibit and explains how Kings Landing came into being. You can find more information here and here. And of course, I've done many blogposts about it which you will find on the link in my labels at the bottom of this post.
This is the Joslin Farm.
This barn is really long. All of the buildings were moved from their original sites along the St. John River before it was flooded. It was quite a feat to move them, some by road and some across the ice in winter.

This was a display in the ell of the Joslin Farm. I love how the old farms had additions attached to the end or back of the house for storage and often, indoor 'facilities' rather than outhouses. I remember my aunt and uncle's farmhouse had an ell with the 'facility' before they had an indoor plumbed bathroom installed. It was nice to have it indoors out of the weather but I'm sure it was cold in the winter!
Another barn on the Joslin farm had pumpkins next to an old wagon. There were sheep and cows here as well.
Well hello cow.
As many times as I've been to Kings Landing I try to find different things to photograph. It seems I never run out of different things to see, different angles, different light which all add up to different photos. Good thing I only go there once or twice a year!

That was our weekend. Busy and fun and filled with blessings. I hope you had a beautiful weekend and Thanksgiving in Canada. Have a great day!
