The Museum is open from 3 -7 and all the pathways are lit with candles. Hot Wassail bubbles in kettles over open fires and you can enjoy a horse drawn wagon ride.
A late nap kept us from arriving early enough to enjoy the band and carollers performing, but it did mean a very close parking spot and no wait for the wagon ride-- so we actually went twice. Graham loved hearing the clippity clop of the horses hooves and the jangle of the bells on their harnasses.
We also ran into no one other than Kris Kringle. Sadly he wasn't received any more warmly than the Santas we saw earlier in the month.
Surprisingly, Graham really liked the Hot Wassail (which I am sure will please his Aunties to no end). Nothing like some Hot Wassail, eh girls?
Thank goodness for warm boots and snowsuits. It was COLD! After picking up some donuts and examining a few wagons in the barns, we headed home.
Here's some video from our wagon ride. The melodious voice you hear belongs to my adorable husband:
Happy Solstice to one and all!
