  • did you know that ketchup chips originated in canada i did

  • okay i did know that did you know that before you researched it

  • no i did i've known that even though yes oh okay yes

  • i actually i had to look it up what were canadian snacks and junk food

  • and uh i was surprised to find out ketchup chips were amongst the

  • things that were invented in canada there you go something to be proud of

  • so this is our little eating area basically and if we open the curtains

  • we've got the house the main house this is

  • where the owners live so there's live over there got hammock

  • rivers down there yeah yeah so we're just keeping it closed for now you know

  • a little bit of space between us yes what else we've got a flashlight

  • in case we need to go out in the middle of the

  • night to use yeah i guess if we wanted to go to the dock

  • for some reason it works and now we will take you outside so we showed

  • you the inside which is small and the outside is a little bit even

  • more spacious the first thing i love is the happy camper sign are you a happy

  • camper samuel today i am yes because i got my rest on

  • the hammock had i not got that rest maybe not a

  • happy cat or maybe a grumpy camper okay well let's be thankful for that the

  • thing i love about this place is that it's got a deck

  • surrounding the entire area this is going to be our barbecue grill

  • for the night so one of the super easy ones to use

  • spark it turn it on and we barely have anything to cook so

  • we have literally have two skewers yeah that shouldn't take very long at all

  • no we're not we're not attempting to uh a grill master your dad or anything

  • that's for sure so as we come along here the deck

  • continues and don't mind the wind because it is a

  • little bit windy and this is where i think we're going to

  • have our beers very soon we've got a couple of uh lawn chairs

  • which are super comfortable and if you come over here

  • we've got the woodshed

  • okay shall we we shall we shall okay removes the bungee cord

  • first all right sam's already been here oh you

  • haven't been inside yet wow wow you're in for a surprise

  • come on in come on in don't bump yourself

  • well okay so we have artwork covering one window then we can see

  • straight down to the water yes i believe this is called a medical

  • commode okay um so basically well sam's already

  • used it so i'm not gonna lift the lid yeah we don't

  • we don't need to see what's in there you lift the lid you go to the toilet

  • yeah um they've put a bag in there so yes they're gonna tie the bag and

  • yeah and then that's the lid for it the lid okay right you didn't put the lid

  • back on no that's for when they did that's when

  • they deal with it later okay sure look there's more artwork more art

  • in case you you need inspiration in the bathroom okay which

  • is nice toilet paper yeah we have um wet wipes hand sanitizer

  • yeah a very thoughtful station with more candles

  • yes because you know you can never get enough candles and more

  • garbage bags in case this one fills up with

  • number one and two oh my gosh i've never no no no no plans for us to to make that

  • happen too no too so yeah that is it it's

  • maybe the most unique outhouse flash yeah

  • bathroom there are no curtains anywhere but in the little booklet it said that

  • they've tested out the toilet from different angles and that no one can

  • actually see you here so you can enjoy the view maybe a fox

  • and maybe a fox maybe maybe a record we can

  • handle a fox or a reckon seeing a summer toilet

  • but enough about outhouses let's travel back in time to new brunswick in the

  • 1800s so as we already mentioned earlier that

  • day we visited king's landing and no this has nothing to do with game of

  • thrones king's landing is a living open air museum where you can walk through a

  • village and experience what life was like in rural new brunswick back in the

  • 1800s the best part really is chatting with

  • the villagers because they are interpreting real stories from the past

  • and they will not break character over the course of our visit we met the local

  • choir practicing ahead of the church service

  • we learned some of the town gossip while visiting the blacksmith in his workshop

  • and we bought some hard candies from the local store but we'll get to all of that

  • first up we need to hop on a wagon and hitch a ride into town

  • this is so refreshing oh it's like ice water

  • let me have a bird back here it's probably no surprise that our first

  • stop in the village was the king's head in restaurant

  • it was lunchtime and we were hungry we ordered two sweet lemonades that were oh

  • so refreshing a delicious order of fish and chips with

  • coleslaw and tartar sauce a side of giant onion rings and a

  • gingerbread cake with cream for dessert just a very timely ice cold

  • oh much needed in this heat with ice cubes

  • it's nice and sweet and tart that's the most refreshing thing in the world

  • fish and chips have arrived they look

  • amazing portions are super generous

  • that was it looks so good don't get in the tata

  • oh i can hear that i can hear the crispiness of it

  • how's that mm-hmm

  • perfectly fish and chips are uh an institution out here

  • in the maritimes

  • oh yeah these are super crispy big big slices of onion yeah these are awesome

  • just finished lunch how was it it was a feast of feasts

  • that was very good yeah it was delicious but to be honest on a day like today

  • would have been better maybe to go with one of their salads i'd say

  • yeah just love the fish and chips the onion rings were gigantic

  • nice dessert and maybe best of all was the

  • the ice cold lemonade that was so needed yeah everything we ordered was about 30

  • total yeah great prices were really really big

  • yeah like honestly you could probably split a fish and chips with someone if

  • you got two pieces like we did you could get a single piece but for a couple

  • bucks more you add a second piece of fish

  • so now we're gonna go walk around the village a little bit

  • and see what we find we've got our little map in hand so we're all set

  • then it was time to explore king's landing how it works is that you get a

  • map at the entrance with the layout of the village

  • and then you have the freedom to explore at your own pace going in and out of the

  • different buildings and meeting the various characters going on about their

  • day we visited some of the homes set along

  • the riverfront so we could enjoy the cool breeze

  • here we came across some of the local villagers who were fishing

  • doing laundry and having a mid-afternoon chat and we

  • eventually reached the local store where we bought some old-fashioned hard

  • candies

  • so we just did a little shopping at grant's store

  • got some candy some old-fashioned liquors guys

  • my family is we're all licorice addicts yeah

  • you really are my dad i mean audrey likes it the most oh my gosh i think

  • it's the worst thing in the world i got myself a little licorice pipe and

  • best of all for some vintage candy dad's

  • old-fashioned root beer and what did i get is mine still in

  • there a candy cane candy cane strawberry kiwi

  • oh

  • hallelujah away

  • we then rode the wagon to the local grist mill which grinds greens into

  • flour and millet we also visited the sawmill where we met

  • a friendly gentleman who invited us to try our hand

  • at being lumberjacks see who's the best well you could i pull you don't push

  • into it you pull into it

  • well that is a good job

  • and that was our visit to king's landing this is a really fun place to spend the

  • day if you find yourself in the fredericton area and we'd highly

  • recommend visiting but now let's get back to the tiny house
