Thanksgiving Weekend - 3

After church on Sunday, Kevin and I and my parents drove up to Meaford.  The whole drive there was along the southern shore of Georgian Bay - desolate and windy at this time of year but still enjoyable.  We love visiting the Meaford Factory Outlet.  You never know what you will find there.  We make a trip every fall to get stocking stuffers and fill up the Samaritan's Purse shoeboxes.

Meaford is also home to the Scarecrow Invasion.  The whole town is decorated.  There are scarecrows in store windows, front lawns and climbing buildings and street posts.  These scarecrows were at a garage.

 These scarecrows were at country homes.

We took the scenic route home through the countryside.  It was a beautiful fall drive.  The colours were great.  We saw 2 deer and a flock of wild turkeys.  We stopped at Walter's Falls.  This picture is taken from the bridge over the falls looking down.


My parents and Alec went home today and we went to see Kevin's mom.  It was a great weekend.

It looks like you had a busy weekend, but it sounded like a lot of fun too.

The pumpkin is very realistic. I'm not surprised you're the one who found it though. You spend you day with plants. You can spot a fake from 100 paces.

(I only commented here, but I read all three posts)

I love the desolation of early winter.

I love the scarecrow idea....That is so cool.

They do it in the Village here too. I'm surprised by how much people decorate just 'cause it's fall - I don't even think of it.
