The Amish Country

Hank and I love traveling to the Bird-in-Hand area in Pennsylvania. We were there for a few days last week. It is one of our favorite places to visit. No, we don't go in for the "touristy" stuff, we just enjoy getting off the main roads and looking at the beautiful Amish farms. Their gardens put ours to shame!

We love to antique in and around this area. I am usually able to find early homespun and samplers - which are impossible to find in our area. We always stay at the Amish View Inn where the rooms overlook nothing but the farmland - and a small Amish school. It's nice to enjoy breakfast while watching the Amish children clamor into their one room schoolhouse. If you have never visited this area you should plan on a trip soon.
