A pleasant vignette shows a couple of farm workers piling loose hay into a wagon. The St.Lawrence river can be seen behind the field. The "villagers" do real farm work with the horses and oxen.This is an unusual house. To me it looks like it should be in the South-west US. The fences around the houses and gardens provided protection from the farm animals who were often left to wander loose to eat grass where they could find it.

More pictures next time. I was disappointed to realize I didn't take photos of the many "villagers" dressed in period costume. Some other time I must focus on the people.

I am hoping to walk this trail later in the fall when the leaves have turned colour. It should be really nice then, too.

The fair had lots more to see and do: a variety of food vendors, cow show, petting zoo, Western horse show, craft and baking exhibits, art and photography exhibits, chili bake-off, vegetable and flowers classes, music, beach volley-ball, old steam machinery. The list just goes on and on. A fabulous feat of organizing by a dedicated group of volunteers.
