Naked Cats can "Time Travel" at Kings Landing-5 Meows

Kings Landing historical settlement, located in the St.John River Valley of New Brunswick can suck anyone back into the 1800's without mercy, naked or clothed! Here is their web site http://www.kingslanding.nb.ca/ . Pets are not permitted by the way, unless you are an employed working animal like moi.
This huge hole in the time space continuum has 70 buildings and takes at least 3-4 hours to guide yourself through, if you hurry. Since I am not the hurrying type, I once again enlisted the help of my co pilot, Haiden. Here we are travelling in his very luxurious, off roading stroller. Check out the snacks holder in the front!
First we saw some powerful horses working the fields in the hot sun. Although they looked quite happy, I slipped them my union's business card when the people were not looking.

Next, we decided to do some shopping in the "General Store". Here I am greeting one of my new fans! "Excuse me madam, do you sell peanut butter sandwiches?"
They did not. However they did sell lovely old fashioned candy which I did not sample because I left my toothbrush at home. While my people stuffed their faces, I partook in a more serious activity: examining the playthings of 19Th century children and their cats...Mmm Hmmm, yes, so this spins like so...

Give me that you imbecile!!...er ..I mean..."may I take a closer look at that daddy?"
Yes but can you eat it?

OOooh! I like this one the best. Charge it to my account please.

I even tried on some traditional clothing. Beautiful n'est pas?

This is a lovely fountain outside the general store.


After the shopping we went for a stroll. Well, Haiden and my people strolled. I spent the rest of my visit enjoying the view from the front seat of the buggy while daddy pushed me around the park.

Now where were those goldfish crackers Haiden had in the snack holder?

Here I am near the working mill.

Then we sniffed our way through the gardens! This magnificent color, which smells like LOVE, is called "fashion Fuchsia" nowadays. However, in the 1920's it was named "Hollywood" and later "Hollywood Cerise" in the 1940's. I wonder what they called it in the 1800's ?

MMMmmm "Ipomoea violacea!" My favorite! It still smells like morning, how glorious!

Where did I put my sunglasses?

It is 4 O'Clock. Almost time for my pre dinner, post lunch nap.

Pumpkins! How do they fit them into such delicious pie?
This is a kitchen sink from the pioneer days.

OOooh! A Swing!!! Look Haiden a swing. You know what swings mean do you not?
Yes! Swings mean trees! Here I am climbing, while Haiden swings below me and we discuss symbiotic relationships.
Here is a picture of Haiden's shoes swinging with him.
Well! Kings Landing has a lot to offer. You could easily stay here all day relaxing and learning. They have a restaurant with incredible food, an ice cream parlor, various gift shops and ample parking. If you get tired and you do not have a stroller like Haiden and I, there are horse drawn wagons to take you around in. I give Kings Landing 5 Meows out of 5!
