|The motel room in Sturbridge was so charming.|
The next day was an exploration of Sturbridge, especially Sturbridge Village, which is a recreated area to mimic what this town looked liked in the 1800's.
The grounds were beautiful, and one could wander around and look into all the buildings, including a blacksmith's shop, a candle maker's shop, meeting rooms, a well-to-do-residence, etc. Many guides were there, dressed in period costumes, ready to share information about that period of history in Massachusetts.
|Yes, I even got to make two candles of my own!|
|Loved the harpsichord in the background.|
|A ride on a horse drawn wagon took us through a covered bridge.|
|The poles are actually a "machine" constructed to get well water.|
