Balls Falls Conservation Area is the perfect location for a Fall Fair. The colours, the wide stream running through it, the oranges and golds...and the aroma of chip fat...yum!
There are a few very small historical buildings located here such as this home which would have housed a family but is the size of most people's front room!
Artisans and collectors of all sorts were pedaling their wares. I absolutely love old portraits such as this and for some reason find this curmudgeonly looking fellow quite charming!
The blacksmith shop is usually a place we look forward to visiting so that we can warm up but it was downright warm on this day.
But not so warm that I left my Hawthorne shawl at home! I was so happy with this one that I'm eight rows into another one in blue. In front of me is the actual falls for which the conservation area is named and believe me...it's quite the drop to the bottom!
This morning we awoke to our first frost of the season. Summer has well and truly been put to bed.
