Very nice lovely restored houses forming a village in Colonial style; houses provide little shops with souvenirs and hand-crafted goods and also a lovely cafe/restaurant

It was worth a short stop and see, but not overly impressed by the inventory here. The stop did result in a few photo opportunities , so it was worth a brief visit.
