we talked to several of the ladies in the camp. . .

they said they do all of their cooking, eating, and sleeping

right there in the tents. . .and that this was one of their best venues,

because they had real restrooms, and even showers. . .

that many of their venues only provide porta potties. . .


They also stated that they loved doing it. . .that is was a great get together. . .

 

I know they do all this on their own dime. . .

we thanked them repeatedly, and told them how

much we were enjoying the show. . .it was fabulous!

is this adorable or what?

I’m sorry. . .I could never do justice to how really great the entire place was. . .

you’re just gonna haf’ta go see it for yourself!


Although the grounds did not seem crowded,

the sheer number of people inside the buildings

prevented us from touring a lot of them. . .

We did see the glass blowers. . .
(I guess I was so entranced watching them I forgot to take pics)

and several other artisans. . .

Since we didn’t get as many pics of the Village as we would have liked,

I have included links to more images of Greenfield Village

and even MORE fabulous images of Greenfield Village

plus our albums of our favorite things. . .

 

we’ll see you down the road at Traverse City Michigan

where we must go to have a repair done on our Aqua Hot. . .

wish us luck!

‘til next time,

Janice and Dave
