Bits & Pieces of Today

 Today was a busy day. 
Five different buses came in and only one bus left going north. 
These passengers are going north, the final destination Penn Yan New York, with drop-offs in Virginia, various places in Pennsylvania before New York. 

 This is the Pioneer bus with Ohio passengers. 

 Another Pioneer bus with the Indiana passengers. Earlier in the morning the CrossRoads and Journey Tours came in from Indiana.

 A mixed table at the Benefit Dinner tonight at the park.

 At Birky Square with The Chuck Wagon Gang.

Culture Contrast

The only reason I took this photo is the contrast of cultures, and yet we share the same territory. Pinecraft is probably the only area where these two cultures share space.

Concert on Birky Street

 Tonight at six there was a John Schmid concert on Birky Street.
Instead of sitting in the center of the huge crowd, I decided to make a circle around the backside. These are the few I captured.

 This was the first that caught my eye, Norman Eicher formerly from Aylmer Ontario, with his  daughter and baby doll sitting on his shoulders. On his right are his mother and father, who has since moved from Aylmer to Powassan Ontario. 

 Coming prepared to sit, but where?

 A spot was found and these sweet ladies are in the process of getting off.

And the sun set tonight.

There was also the Saturday night concert on Gardenia Street.  Big Olaf was busy and people were in and out of the Deli. And it looked like all the rest of the people were on the streets biking and walking. It was a busy evening.

Cousins: From this...

to this.
Left to right: Mary Stutzman Troyer, Lovina Miller Hershberger, Alma Yoder.
It must be their Mothers were from the Weaver Clan. Nor do I know if these women are first or second or half cousins, but they are cousins.

Chit Chat

Abner Kauffman on the right visiting.

Anna Kauffman on the left visiting. 
The Amish here are not husband and wife. I don't know their connections.

On Wheels

 Pinecraft Wheels, Snow Bird Wheels

Golf Carts, I think there were five on here.

Sisters, wheeling about

Will Yoder, Faith's husband hauling sod.

Katie Fisher on a bike.
 Last winter she biked the Legacy Trail all the way to Venice and back, plus biked to and from the trail head a distance of 5 miles one way. She is quite a lady for her age.

 Segway Travel

Also trying out Segway.
