Two weeks ago I signed my Pinecraft photos, either in book form, or postcards, or a 2014 Pinecraft calendar at Yoder's Gift Shop. Nancy Ebersol Good and Janet Oberholtzer did the photo shooting. These are the pictures Nancy took with my camera.
In looking through these photos I am seeing myself through the eyes of other people, which in all honesty is good for me.
I greatly enjoyed meeting people.
This gentleman needed a place to sit while the rest of his group browsed the Gift Shop. This gave us the opportunity to visit.
Ivan & Sarah Ann Miller from Charm Ohio.
Janet Oberholtzer and Nancy Ebersol Good and myself.
Visiting with a Huber couple from Ontario. The Ira Huber I knew years ago was this man's uncle.
Brian Emrich, the Yoder's Restaurant manager found a photo of his daughters in one of the photo books. Of course he bought the book.
One of the photo books has the cover of Paul Miller and Reuben Troyer.
More of the books. I got new photo books published a few weeks ago.
Marvin & Carol Yoder
Butch Chupp's wife who bought postcards of her grand daughter.
I signed a calendar Stella Kauffman had previously bought.
Two of Yoder's employees.
I got to shake hands with one cute little girl.
And pet her brother's dog.
Janet & Laura
Visiting with Julie
Mary Hershberger from Berlin Ohio

The CrossRoad bus from Indiana loaded passenger bound for Indiana. This young Mother and baby spent time with her Mother in Pinecraft and is on her way home. I have no way of tagging her bust she said she has a sister by the name of Joan Miller from Middlebury IN who has Facebook, but I couldn't find her.
A few were still visiting after the CrossRoads left. The man with his back turned is Wayne Troyer who misses Marie Beachy like crazy. I think the two are cousins.
Dashing through Yoder's Amish Village in a one horse open sleigh...
Shannon Enrich and Janet Holtz
This is 80 degree weather in Pinecraft, shoes off and shirt tail out...
At 1 PM the Pioneer Bus pulled in with a full load. This is the parking lot before the bus came in. I wonder where all these people are other times as the streets are still fairly empty.
Sam Troyer with a load of The Budgets, the Amish newspaper printed in Sugar Creek Ohio and comes down via Pioneer Bus.
A lot of young couples were on the bus. Makes me wonder if they came down for an early Christmas in Sarasota.
Visiting at the Park.
It is the perfect weather for this type of car.

Wednesday and Saturday evenings the Drum Circle is on Nokomis Beach, whereas Sunday night it is on Siesta Beach.
The first look at the drummers.
Janet listening to Larry Abram.
And the snow Man from the north. Looks like he is being choked.
Larry, who is Nancy's neighbor.
Sand and weeds
A well dressed biker. If he is homeless, it is by choice. He had friends in the inner circle.
