Old Fort William

We went to the fort as part of our staycation. Check out the website here. I love the Fort, my Z-day plan involves moving there and fending off the zombies with cannon balls.

Here's Hay waiting for the shuttle. Normally I'd just walk to the fort but it was crazy hot today so we rode in.

He claimed to be a doctor, dentist, surgeon and apothecary. Limey was freaked out by the description of a tooth extraction.

This is where all the rich guys stay when visiting the fort.

Not a fan of life in the fort obviously. Oddly he was the only patient in the hospital.

Isobel was getting grumpy so we threatened her with jail time.

Oooh a sweet little calf.

This sheep was checking the kids out for ages.

There are a ton more buildings in the fort. They also recreate events like firefighting, the rendevous, arrests etc. We tried bannock, rabbit and wood fired bread. It's always a fun place to go.
