Following a Buggy

Sophia, Olivia, my parents, and I visited La Crosse on July 19-20th to see The Shrine of Our Lady of Guadalupe. On the way, we stopped in Cashton, Wisconsin, at the cheese factory as well as several Amish homes.

As we approached the cheese factory, we followed a horse and buggy. It went a bit ahead and pulled into the waiting shed to the right of the picture. In the shed, there were several buggies and horses waiting while the drivers were working or shopping.

Following a horse and buggy at such a slow pace gave us all time to enjoy the countryside and the various farms we were passing. We visited several farms where we purchased hand-sewn and crafted items, baked goods, and fresh produce. It was definitely one of the highlights of the trip.
