After Price went on his Ride-Along we went to Canterbury Shaker Village. Every time we pass by the exit for it I make a huge fuss about going. I was able to sway Price into going by explaining it was Wool Day there and it would be the perfect chance to see alpacas, angoras, sheep and goats. Price was just as excited as me when I told me that. Clearly, I am being sarcastic, but he went along with it anyway. And I’m going to safely assume that he enjoyed himself while we walked around the different Shaker buildings learning about their broom making and how they wove poplar to make tiny boxes.
Plus then we saw…
ALPACAS!!! (’nuff said)
This guy was too tired to stand up for us.
These 3 ladies were knitting in the round. There were 3 circle needles and they each had an end of one. They had a raffle for the poncho. I’m hoping I get lucky with my 4 tickets!!
We talked with the guy who owns Work in Progress Farm. He was really nice explaining that the horns keep the goats cool and his one female goat gives off 7 pounds of wool 2x a year. We got to pet Thor. He had amazing soft ears.
I tried on this beautiful felted hat from Scattered Stone Goods. I’m pretty sure I’ll be ordering this for the winter.
After checking out all vendors and the big tent we relaxed in some Adirondack chairs under an apple tree. We admired the views and the embroidery hoops I got.
We finished off the trip to Canterbury Shaker Village by going to Greenwood’s, the onsite restaurant, for lunch. Fantastic food.
