After leaving Erin, I wanted to see Belfountain. It is really just a hamlet, but they had a very attractive general store there. I have a picture of it from the 70s, and it still pretty much looks the same, except that there is an addition on one end. The Forks of the Credit Conservation Area is just around the corner. I never got to know that. I’m not even sure if it was there then. It was a hopping evening in Belfountain, with folks eating ice cream and sitting at tables.
This is the house behind the stick entrance: “Gingerbread Cottage”, which is a bit twee, but it is very pretty. My guess is that the gingerbread has been added, or I would have noticed this forty years ago.
Here’s the general store, with its addition.
It looked like there was merchandise in this shop. The storefront takes “distressing” to a whole new level.
More artistic touches.
This is one of the stone structures decorating “Standing Stones Farm”, between Belfountain and Eden Mills. Another was an inukshuk, surrounded by munching cows, haloed with evening sunlight.
Eden Mills tomorrow.
