Kings Landing Today

 If you want to laugh, read my last post.  
                But today we visited Kings Landing in the extreme heat. 
We didn’t linger as long as usual but I got some nice photos anyway.
 I always feel at home in this historic village in New Brunswick, Canada 

The old salt box by the St John River 

Drying strawflowers 

 Three little brooms 
Drying marigold petals

         Hubby cooling off with chilly spring water in a     stone sink dated 1784

This would be a super pattern for using up worms 
This poor cow appreciated a scratch from my husband 
as those flies were horrible!
This home has the coolest kitchen; it’s part underground 
Blueberry pie!

Late summer gardens 

The brown bread, so popular at this site, wasn’t baked today. It was too warm. Ah well, we must go back again for that!

That looks like a wonderful place to visit, beautiful area and I love to visit historic towns. Way too hot here too, staying home mostly and getting out later in the day is the best.

Still hot and humid here in Delaware and I'm not sight seeing in this stuff, that's for sure. The hit and miss circles definitely would be a great way to use up those ever multiplying strips said...

Thank you Debbie! I go several times each season. This year they will reopen for Halloween, which sounds fun. Today will be hottest day of the year before a cool front moves in Monday. said...

Must say the docents put on a good face in all that heavy garb. Today we are staying in.

Thanks for sharing your trip to Kings landing. It brings back a lot of good memories.
We used to visit King's Landing often years ago with the family but I haven't been there for a while. My friend Pat was a docent there and had to work in the summer heat but she loved it. Many more buildings have been added since then.

King's Landing is a living museum and represents the lifestyle of rural New Brunswicans of that era. The buildings are original buildings from 1820 to 1920 and were salvaged and moved there before the Mactaquac headpond was built, some buildings come from various areas of New Brunswick. The project started in 1960 and continues to the present. New buildings are added as they become available.

Take care and stay cool.

OOOO, Kimm... I never tire of looking at your photos of Kings Landing! How I would love to visit some day. I fear I would be lingering much too long over each and every thing. Love the circles rug fun. Hope you've gotten some relief from the heat. Our intense humidity broke last night after some heavy rains. We are only to be in the 70's all this week I I am not sure we even got to 70. Have a great new week! ~Robin~

What a wonderful place! I love brown bread my grandmother's both use to make it. I never have maybe this winter when it is not hot I will give it a try

Thanks for the share Julia . It’s indeed a provincial treasure! said...

I hope you will come see it some day. Truly too much to view in a day or two even. Our respite is supposed to come in the next 12 hours. We don’t have AC and it feels 103 today. said...

Brown bread is amazing! A taste of the past and present with a pinch of grandma and love thrown in!

Fun day trip!
Oh, I love that circles rug.

I so enjoy visiting historic homes like this. So many wonderful items! I use to dry marigolds and make them into garlands for Autumn. That circle rug is amazing too! Janice said...

The petals are put into arrowroot powder and used as a talc. I need to get the recipe and use for it next time I’m there. I bet your garlands were gorgeous

I think I would feel right at home in this old historic district too. I love the photos ~ and your blog. said...

Thank you! It’s strange how homey it feels to some. Others don’t care for history at all.
