Amish & Mennonite Farms in PA

Amish & Mennonite Farms in PA

In December while visiting our daughter and her family
in the beautiful area around Lancaster, PA,
we took a ride through the gorgeous countryside
of rolling hills and Amish & Mennonite Farms.
I know that many of you have been in that area before,
but by 'popular request' I am posting some pictures
which I took on that excursion. It was a VERY cold, windy
day and we had just had about two inches of snow.
RELAX and enjoy the view!

One Room Amish Schoolhouse

Enjoy the beauty of God's creation!
Next week: A Mennonite Furniture & wood craft shop.
Have a blessed week!

Wilbur Candy Shop, Lititz, PA

We spent Christmas this year in PA where
our daughter and her family now live. Close-by in the
 little town of Lititz is a wonderful family owned candy shop,
Wilbur Chocolate Company, which is 145 years old.
One section of the shop has numerous candy molds
 and candy making equipment from early days.
I had more fun looking at them than all the different
 types of chocolate to buy! I thought you might
enjoy some of my pictures.
So sorry I couldn't share some of the chocolate with you!
They were totally amazing!

I hope you enjoyed this mini-tour!
This is also where there are many Amish and
Mennonite farms in the lovely rolling countryside.
I'll share those pictures next week, so please come back.
