I have two small gems to share with you from our first adventure in Aylmer. First is that there are several Settlement Stories Quilt Squares in the area. We "accidentally" found two. Now I have a map from the website so I'll be able to "on purpose" find more.
The second little gem I would like to share is Music. As we were walking down the main street of Aylmer I could hear music . . . quiet, lovely music. Absolutely charmed when we found the source -- speakers on the lampposts.
I searched through In My World and found even more posts I've made over the years about Aylmer:

Letterboxing near Aylmer
Aylmer Wildlife Management Area. . . again

Aylmer Wildlife Management Area . . . yet again. Do you get the feeling we really enjoy this place?
The Pie Pantry . . . I heard a rumour that this lovely place has closed.
