Amish Country

Another day trip, this one with a friend. We visited Arthur, Illinois to visit an Amish community. The Amish do not like you to take their photo, especially their face. It's ok to take from the back or from a distance.

we also attended a quilt social. this quilt is 130 years old.
can't help myself from taking horse and buggy photos
one of our stops was Beachy's grocery store. this is the spice aisle; almost everything is bulk sold.

what do you do when you don't have a clothes dryer?
plowing the fields with a six team hitch
buggy and sulky
we ate lunch at an Amish home, everything made from scratch and after lunch I ran around taking photos of their land and building.
and made a new friend
since this sect of Amish doesn't use electricity, they use propane gas to have light in the house
visited an antique shop on main street
love these old feed bags I have a couple that I am going to make pillows out of
