St. Jacobs, Ontario

The Village of St. Jacobs is a lovely place to while away an hour or so. Horses and buggys are still common traffic on rural roads, and can be seen in the village.

The picture shown here, is of a mural on the side of one of the craft shops on the main street .

There are antique shops, gifts, arts and crafts, and when I visited there were two ladies actually working on a patchwork quilt in one of the shops.

Here is the same horse and buggy from a different angle, outside the Forge at St. Jacob's with the Master of the horse.
