Busy Fall Weekend

Fall is here and it felt like it this weekend.  Temps dipped into the 50's for a high and the colors are in full change.  Well, at least around Northern Tuscarawas County.  Funny thing was, further up north in Cuyahoga Falls, they appeared to be a week or so behind us.  I think it's probably because they got more rain up there then we did this summer.  Oh well.  Still was fun on Saturday taking a quick trip north to visit "The Ledges" at the Cuyahoga Valley National Park.

After wondering around the valley for a while, we headed on up to The Stew Pot Kitchen on Main Street in Downtown Akron. It my buddy Scott's restaurant and he's allowing my work to be displayed on the walls there as part of the monthly Akron Art Walk. (HINT: It's for sale, too!) If you're ever in the area, stop on by and take a look in the back room. Have some soup while you're there! It IS good stuff!

On Sunday, Denise and I headed out to Wooster to enjoy the Colonial Williamsburg Festival at The Pine Tree Barn. As the website says,
Step back 200 years in time to 18th-century Williamsburg. For two days, Pine Tree Barn is transformed into a bustling colonial village.
Our close friend Jen owns her own small business and she makes some fantastic period ware.  Anything from the Renaissance to the 1940's.  She had a booth and we wanted to stop by and support her and check out the other fine products for sale.  Was a great festival and the cold weather got us in the pre-holiday mood.  Kinda of scary considering that it's only October.  But, living historians and crafts on a Sunday in October are always fun.  A gentleman by the name of Roger Moore gave an interesting talk about his heritage and the real stories behind Native Americans.  Not the Hollywood story.  The troops shown below might look familiar if you follow this site.  They were from the 8th Pennsylvania Regiment, which are the same people that are in Bolivar each year at the Revolution on the Tuscarawas encampment at historic Fort Laurens
