Somewhere on the outskirts of Stratford Ontario. I find it refreshing to see young people outside enjoying Nature rather than indoors and glued to a screen.

Much better to be enjoying the outdoors! Perhaps the outskirts aren't cable and internet ready yet. :-)

@Steven: I believe the girls to be Mennonites, for the blue dress is a main part of their attire code, and as such they wouldn't have any modern "conveniences". I love technology but ALWAYS want to be outdoors and in the beauty provided my mother Earth. Thanks, Steven.

I was going to ask if they were Amish because of the clothing the girls are wearing. Yes, certainly refreshing.

@Ruthiebear: The Mennonites are very much like the Amish, and there are a lot of them around south and southwest Ontario. Hard workers and their farm crops are certifiably non-GMO, which I love. We have a store in Elora that is run by Mennonites and we purchase their seed for the backyard garden. Thanks, Ruthie.

Certainly Mennonites. Nice capture.
