New Harmony 

August 18 began with a pretty late-summer morning. We met and signed-in on Diamond Avenue and were soon on our way.

We motored past some unhappy cornfields west of Evansville.

It wasn't the Hoosier National Forest, but there are a few curves between Evansville and New Harmony.

Nice day for a drive!

We gathered at Creation Station, where proprietor Rick Huffman once again had etched glasses for the club members.

Matt Roethemeier examined the glasses. Scott Klueh, Mike Fox, and Mark Rothemeier looked over his shoulder.

Matt applied his own talents to one of Rick's dulcimers to the delight of Vicky Fox, Linda Barth, Mike Fox, Dave Hostetter, and the rest of us browsing through the art and jewelry in  Rick's shop.

Vicky and Mike Fox, 
Dave and Stirling Hostetter, Tom Southwell, Pamela Simpson and Scott Klueh moved outside to enjoy the refreshing weather.

We might have simply wandered through New Harmony's historic areas or shopped before heading to Samuel's Place for lunch, but a gentleman in a golf cart invited us to see his Cayman and the rest of his collection.

A very entertaining Larry Gosh recently moved to New Harmony from California. 

His collection included this handsome Rolls, a big Chrysler, and a pair of street rods.

This award-winning 1929 Model A Pickup was hand made in Indianapolis.

Larry was eager to point out its features to Bob Simpson and Mike Fox.

Larry showed some of his wife's amazing antique doll collection to Linda Barth, Macie Yelton, Pamela Simpson, Vicky Fox, Susan Jindrich and Criss Yelton. Susan's holding a stalk of Brussels sprouts bought from a market vendor, if you were wondering. 

Many of the dolls were rare and wore elegant dresses.

Finally, we walked over to Samuel's Place for an enjoyable lunch before heading back to Evansville. New Harmony is always a pleasant place to visit, but our unplanned tour of unusual cars and dolls made this trip especially enjoyable.
