|These yards had such GREAT stuff decorating them and the view on the last photo was incredible|
Each on had a theme ~ there was a house, schoolhouse, tavern, and a lighthouse. What a fun place to visit and what a gorgeous place to have a house and the small little village. Also all the money collected went to a charity.
|What an amazing little village|
Another stop we made was to the Canadian Potato Museum which is located in the community of O'Leary. It is surrounded by fertile potato growing fields where the humble potato has played an important role in their economy for many years. The museum depicts an interesting display of the potato industry, and houses a large collection of farm implements and machinery related to the growing and harvesting of potatoes. In fact, this museum contains the largest exhibit of potato artifacts in the world! There is also a small cafe where you can get ~ wait for it ~ Potatoes in almost any form,,, French fried, baked, soup, cinnamon rolls, fudge, cakes, cookies, etc etc. Collectors of the curious will be pleased to find the giant sculptured potato at the entrance to the museum is made of fiberglass and stands 14 feet high and is 7 feet in diameter.
The complex includes other attractions on site such as the Heritage Chapel, the Log Barn and the Little Red Schoolhouse.
It was a fun day for us and we really learned alot about potatoes... LOL LOL Thanks to my latest followers Leeanne & Gary from The BoonDocks who are fairly new to our fulltiming lifestyle ~ so go on over and pay them a visit.
Have Fun & Travel Safe
