Giant Rocking Chair

A giant rocking chair just in front of an antique market. Craftworks At The Barn is fun to visit at the same time. Also next door there is a Christmas store open all year to take a look at. They call it "Christmas Cottage," and they are affiliated.

When the rocking chair was built in 2005 it was originally red, but the color seems to have succumbed to Canadian weather.
