Today we took a drive to Pittsfield with the intention of visiting the Berkshire Museum. It was such a beautiful day that we just kept driving to Hancock and the Shaker Village. The gardens were beautiful and full of the most unusual herbs. Some of them are over 6 feet tall and completely unknown to me. I love the animals the best. We had the good fortune to be in the wood working house while a demonstration was ongoing. Both Wayne and I were invited to try the lathe. All the equipment is run using the power of water and hydraulics. Those Shakers! What innovative and creative people. If only they had a little more libido. Pics at flickr.
