—October 12, 2013— King’s Landing Historical Settlement
(( On Monday, October 14, our friends in the USA will celebrate Columbus Day. In Canada, we will celebrate Thanksgiving. ))
—We heard about King’s Landing Historical Settlement Near Fredericton, New Brunswick. (Not the city in the television series “Game Of Thrones” – Based on George RR Matin’s seven book series “Song of Ice and Fire”.)
—We also heard that this weekend before Canadian Thanksgiving Day would be the final weekend of this season that the theme park would be open.
—The spouse of my dreams had been to “Upper Canada Village” and wanted to see King’s Landing.
—We realized that the King’s Head Inn was a real restaurant that actually served food, and thought we’d get a sandwich and a coffee.
—We didn’t realize that this was a real Restaurant that would serve a wonderful Thanksgiving Dinner. We got lucky.
—After dinner, we didn’t have long to explore the village. But we did take a walk down beside a farmer’s fields (with a scarecrow), took a peek into the Blacksmith’s Barn, Stepped inside an authentic General Store, Had a very nice talk with a caretaker at a genuine Anglican Church, and made it back up the hill in time to buy a very nice tapestry type blanket.
—We had a surprisingly good time on a beautiful day and had a wonderful Thanksgiving Dinner while we were at it.
