“The Scarecrow watched the Woodman while he worked and said to him “I cannot think why this wall is here nor what it is made of.” “Rest you brains and do not worry about the wall,” replied the Woodman, “when we have climbed over it we shall know what is on the other side.”
Last weekend was the Scarecrow Festival in Mahone Bay. We may have been a week late but there were still plenty of scarecrows hanging around. We thought it would be a great place to take our American company. When people come all the way from Washington, over the Thanksgiving Day weekend, you like to help make their journey a worthwhile one. Here are a few of the sights we saw.
I’m not sure how the Royal Family would feel about being scarecrows, but I think this display was one of my favourites. Everyone’s here but Prince Harry.
Scarecrows have certainly come a long way since I was a girl. I loved all the colourful costumes.
The Simpsons are still as popular as ever.
This Marilyn Monro likeness was another favourite of mine.
This is just a few of the highlights from our trip to Mahone Bay. In reality there are far more scarecrows than I could possibly post. Mahone Bay is a lovely seas side town with so many beautiful sights to see. Before ending this post I’ll leave you with this lasting image of the three famous churches.
