My Ride to the Amish Store #10

Hey ya'll!
Today is Thursday which means time to share some ole' country fence pics. 
And much thanks to  Run*A*Round Ranch Report for hosting the weekly linkup!
For this weeks pics, I thought I'd share some back roads, country pics from the beautiful ride that leads me to our local Amish store. I love dropping in time to time to just see how things are still done without all the modern technology we are so use to.  The shelves are old wooden plank boards that are neatly stacked.  The floors are squeaky old boards that let people know where you are. I just love the ole' timely feeling. My aunt still gets her big ole' country, fresh, brown eggs here every week.
My eggs in a crock. You can leave farm fresh eggs out of the fridge as long as they have never been in one.

Here is some of what I see.
 Heading in towards the area there are tons of fences and winding roads.
Look close and you can see the worn buggy markings on the road.

Up and down hills and banks...

 Just follow the Amish buggy marks in the roads...

Then after about 30 minutes of those views above, I get to turn onto an old, country gravel drive.




 And it starts to lead me right up to the beautiful two story home, barns and silos  and the Amish store sitting right at top.

This is my favorite pic showing the side of a barn where the buggies are stored.

I didn't take any photos of the store or home on purpose because there were people outside working and children playing closeup. And it is against Amish beliefs to be photographed face on since they firmly believe in the Commandments that states, "Thou shalt not make any graven image or likeness of any thing."
And if I were to still take a photograph of them by knowing this, then there would be a burden upon me for doing so.
 
Maybe my next visit no one will be outside and I can show off the cute little country store.


And after purchasing my bag of oats and blackberry jam and my Aunt having her eggs in tow, we headed back out of the quaint, quiet area,



and back into modern civilization.

On our way home....

Today I am sharing some good ole' Kentucky country fences found on a day drive through Winchester, KY.

 Hope ya'll enjoy'em!

Here's a shot from pretty far away, as I approached.
(Click on photos to enlarge)

And then here a bit closer you can start to see the cute, wooden, black plank fence.

 And then it gets prettier as I go down the bank and the sky begins to be the backdrop for only the fence.
Beautiful!


But then again, I always love anything to do with the country!

Hope you enjoyed my shots of country fences.
