Then my husband and I continued on to drive to Amish country in PA. which took over three hours. We didn't think it would be that far away so needless to say we stayed over night. It is such pretty country there and the feel of old days seeing all the farms. The horse and buggies driving down the road with the cars is such a surreal feeling. The weather was just beautiful...cool and clear. The only bad thing was by the time we got there it was around supper time and we were tired from all the driving so we stayed in and planned to go to all the shops and things next day. Good plan but it was sunday and most all the shops had signs saying: no sunday sales. I was disappointed because I had wanted to maybe pick up an Amish quilt but we did find the Intercourse Canning Company (yes, that's the name of the store) open so we bought jars of jam, pickled beets and vanilla peaches....yum! I'm sure you have guessed by now it was named Intercourse because it is in Intercourse, PA. Good store with lots of jams, pickled eggs and more to try while you walk around the store. All in all a good weekend.
