This morning, Jon and I explored some of the more famous roadside attractions in Carver.
First stop: King Richard's Faire. This Renaissance fair has been around for a long time, but geeze is it expensive! Now I know why I've gone only once before.
After paying $25 to get in, no kidding you need gas money. Hey, look...the Knights Templar! Symbologist Robert Langdon must not be too far behind.
Second stop: Edaville Railroad. Edaville is famous (in these parts, at least) for its Christmas Festival of Lights, when you ride on the unique narrow-gauge railroad and look at lit-up diaroma-ish displays. But in the fall, you can take a train ride through the bogs and enjoy the cranberry harvest and the foliage. I love autumn!
This gingerbread house is an example of the kind of lit-up sites you'd see on the train ride at Christmastime. Just imagine snow on the ground and a December-dark forest twinkling with tiny electric lights. This is what I think about when I think about Christmas. And, on the right, is one of the "classic" Edaville signs that's scattered around the town.
