Friday’s Fences – “The Plain People”

In addition to fall foliage, Motor Man and I chose to travel to Dayton, Va. last weekend because our friend, Jeremy, told us that it’s home to a large Mennonite (“The Plain People”) community.

We happened by one of their churches on Sunday morning.

And, over to the side, the horses and buggies waited.

The rolling hills and dairy farms make this a particularly beautiful area. (Of course, I thought the horses and buggies were a bonus.)

I loved the sound of the horses’ hooves, clip-clopping along the highway.

And we couldn’t help but notice that the folks in every buggy waved and smiled as they passed by us.

Linking up to Friday’s Fences.
