St.Jacobs, Ontario, Canada 14

Description : The clip-clop of the horses hooves and the clatter of carriage wheels, the splash of potted geraniums and petunias along the sidewalks, the scent of fresh baked bread wafting out from the village bakery, and the heritage buildings flanking the street are all reminiscent of a long gone era of unhurried simplicity. At first glance it seems as though nothing has changed since the town,s Old Order Mennonite settlers first arrived here in Connestoga wagons in the early 1800s. The notion of time standing still is, of course, illusory, but in St. Jacobs this is a gentle deception. Many of the old buildings still exist, but in a new guise - that of upscale boutiques, craft shops and art galleries.
