We visited St. Jacobs from London. It was about an hour and a half via the 401. Two things about the commute. One, we found it quite confusing find our way to St. Jacobs. Off the 401, you are supposed to follow Highway 8 to reach St. Jacobs, but there are Highway 8's everywhere - for instance, you get off of 401 on Highway 8, but you are also travelling parallel to Highway 8 and you eventually get off of Highway 8 onto 85, but then get back on 8. We were never quite sure if we were on the right road.
Then as we were leaving at around 3pm in mid September, we ran into a traffic jam -- it took 30 to 40 minutes to make it to the 401. I can't imagine what it would be like in the summer when tourist traffic is at its peak!
This is not what I was expecting for a cart. It rather looks as if the seats came from a car or van or even theatre seating. These were not the Plain Mennonites that are normally seen with their black plain clothing - these folks were quite brightly dressed, especially the bonnets.
Having visited Toronto the day before, seeing these buggies almost anywhere I looked sure made added to the surprise I felt.
