Irmi's husband, Steve, was our gracious photographer and all-around support.
My site at the campground. They gave each of us the use of a golf cart during our stay.
They also gave us use of the pavilion where we met and had our pot-luck dinner. There was a lot of eating going on, starting with the yummy vegetarian chili that Beth made for everyone on arrival day.
Lake-in-Wood is in the heart of Amish country, so we spent some time touring the area.
Sharing the road with Amish buggies is common here.
They even have their own designated parking at Walmart.
We visited the Amish Village to learn more about their way of life.Their different buggies each have a purpose.
The Amish do not use electricity as we do, but they do use some modern appliances that run on propane or other sources of energy.
We were taught about the clothing. Young women exchange their white apron for a black one when they marry. Youth who are "coming of age" are allowed to wear non-traditional clothing such as tennis shoes until they join the church.
Amish children attend a one-room school house.
Beth arranged for us to have dinner in an Amish home. The meal was wonderful, as was the family that hosted it. The children entertained us with a song.
The family raises fainting goats, which actually do faint if startled.
Another day we traveled to Bird-in-Hand to visit the Farmer's Market and other places.
We stopped for cheese at September Farm.
And we ate at the famous Shady Maple Smorgasbord.
The last dessert.
