One of the many scenes I had on a 20 day taxi road trip with 5 young Amish men (Aged 22-39). Now home, before a 7 day road trip to Northeastern USA. It feels like a 40 hour layover! Maybe after that I will be more consistent with posts!

With such a nice morning, traveling to the wedding with an open carriage is a pleasant ride!

This Amish couple are traveling to a wedding with their “golf cart!” They are probably at the age, etc., that hitching up a horse for a trip wouldn’t be possible!

I have a dilemma! I still haven’t posted many of my photos from my weekend in Charleston, SC. yet! I also have got some nice photos this week, that haven’t been posted. On Monday I am heading for the West Coast, hoping to reach Yosemite National Park by Wednesday evening. This is a 20-day trip, so there should be some great photos coming up! See you then!

Swartzentruber Amish boys heading home after a long day of birding! Their church doesn’t use bicycles!

It was a fun day, when many of us from the company I work for spent some time at the home of this young lady on the right, getting the landscape prepared for her wedding day. I scheduled this post, so today is actually the wedding day, which we are privileged to attend. It is an Amish wedding so it will be at their home! I helped shovel mulch onto the wheel barrows, while some of the girls took it to wherever it was needed.

Changes

This tree is showing off it’s Springtime blooms, showing the change from Winter to Spring. As soon as this lady passed this tree, she turned around, reached into her purse for her flip phone, took a photo of the tree, put the phone back in her purse and headed on home! Amish taking photos is also a change!

Paying Respect

Going to pay respect for a gentleman who died of a massive heart attack! The wagon, is used to transport benches from one home to another for the Amish church services. These are also available for times like these. Note the battery-powered light which will light up the area for those coming in the late evening.

Mother’s Love

A young Amish birder who I took birding the other evening with his Father, and my Cousin’s husband and son! It was a pleasant evening, giving hope that Spring is on the way. Another sign of Spring is the yearly migration of waterfowl, which is what we were birding for.

4 am cleaning off the car; bkfst with friends, and then picking up some of my boss’s family, and birding. Obviously we could set up the scope on the road, since it was flooded and nobody was going on past this point. Saw many birds, but only one new bird! It always felt good to get back in to the car, to travel to the next site.

Warm Spring air, makes the outdoor play area inviting!
