The building is really neat - open and airy. It's long with glass garage doors along both lengths of the building that open. Vendors can back their vehicles right up to the doors. It's hard to see from the photo but they have bundles of twigs tied together and painted white hanging from the ceiling - really creative, I might use this idea in my classroom. There were maybe a dozen vendors and you can see from the photo it was pretty quiet. I'm really bothered when websites are not kept up to date and you arrive only to be disappointed. On a brighter note, we did meet Blackberry Bob who had the absolute sweetest blackberries I have ever eaten. Usually they can be tart with a hint of sweetness but these were sweet like blackberry sugar! I bought my first bunch, actually two bunches, of leeks and am looking forward to cooking with them. After a very delicious coffee and muffin we decided to venture on to Port Dalhousie to visit the town and the little shops along main street.
We enjoyed watching children playing in the water and digging in the sand.
We walked and enjoyed the breeze, watching the boats and seeing these small lighthouses posted along the pier. The water was a beautiful bluey-green. Lot's of people just out for a stroll.
Although we didn't get to do everything I had hoped we did seem to have fun sight seeing, dreaming about the lake front homes and laughing about getting lost!
Mum was a great companion for the day and said she enjoyed herself. Phew!
It's off to the farmers market tomorrow!
