Sunday Buggies

Waterloo, Ontario, Canada, April 29, 2007
My Mom is taking me for a tour in the countryside around Waterloo, Ontario. There is a strong Mennonite community here and she wants to show me the parking lot at their prayer meeting, but we get to see a lot more than we expected.
Just we were coming up to the church we were greeted by a long procession of horse-drawn buggies. Mom says she has tried for the last ten years to see what we're seeing today. We park at the side of the road as the whole community passes by our car.These coaches look ancient but the red triangle on the back gives them a futuristic look at the same time. What an amazing introduction to rural Ontario. Thanks so much for sharing this event with me, Mom.
