Vacation: King's Landing

This is the final post about our vacation to New Brunswick! We've been pretty busy since we got back, so I just now got around to getting these photos in order.

King's Landing is a historical settlement that features a number of houses and other buildings from the 1800's. They have people there who act and work as if they lived in that time, doing the jobs, making food, taking care of the houses, and so on.


Welcome to King's Landing

Ever since we've been married, Natasha has been talking about taking me there, one of her favorite tourist attractions in New Brunswick. We spent the day walking around, seeing the sights, and taking some photos.


The settlement has some really nice scenery


Many old artifacts are displayed in the houses


The Sawmill

Having an interest in woodworking, I spent a bit of time inside the sawmill, learning about how the power of the water wheel is converted into vertical motion for the saw. It's really quite brilliant, and an amazing accomplishment considering the technology of the time.


Some cute piggies we saw in one of the barns


Another view looking out towards the river


And of course, Charlotte was there too, in her cute hat!

Kings Landing looks like a nice place
to visit. Looks like it's similar to Fort Edmonton, The Ukrainian Village, and Heritage Park. We always enjoyed taking you kids to those places that take you back in time.

This year is the 100 Anniversary of Anne of Green Gables in PEI. I'd love to go back there...we didn't have enough time to see everything when we were there on your Wedding Trip.
