Great pictures, thanks for sharing, in the shot of the Apiarist Gear there is an extractor just like the one I use. Must be a functional antique like it's owner ;D.

It was a great place to visit. We are heading there again in a couple of weeks to grab some bulk honey and to check out their 1500 hives. The spring flowers are coming up so the country is looking beautiful right now.
