More Beauty for Healthy Living

Here are a few photos I took earlier this year at Fanshawe Pioneer Village in London Ontario.

This village is a great place to spend a summer afternoon in the sunshine. Founded by the Upper Thames River Conservation Authority in 1956, it was officially opened in 1959.

Spanning 2.2 acres on Fanshawe Lake, a lake created by Fanshawe Dam, Pioneer Village is a delightful place to visit. As you can see by the one picture, it is a great place for sailing. There is also a roped-off area for swimming.

Our church has also held water baptismal services in the lake.

As you stroll through the grounds past soldiers clad in bright red uniforms and ladies dressed in period costumes, you are transported back in time to an era long past.

Relax, wander through the homes, enjoy the beauty and peaceful outdoors.

Buildings are being added yearly. There are several churches, the old London Free Press office, beautiful old homes complete with furniture of the era.

After you have seen all the buildings you can stop by for ice cream and home-made pie in the little shop. There is also a general store where you can wander at your leisure and purchase items of interest to you.

Without beauty in our lives we are not truly living healthy, so I do hope you have enjoyed my pictures and that this little bit of beauty will help you to experience more Healthy Living.

If you reside in the London area I would encourage you to set aside a day before summer is over and visit Fanshawe Pioneer Village. There are also special seasonal events, so if summer isn't convenient, try Thanksgiving or Christmas. You won't regret it. If you live too far away, consider camping in the Fanshawe Park campground. Check out their web site for more information. http://www.fanshawepioneervillage.ca

Healthy Living to you all.
