A stroll through Amish country

 

Garden store in Strasburg, PA

Today and tomorrow I’ll be showing you the last of my photos from the Amish country. (Do I hear a cheer in the background?) I’m going to have to bite the ole bullet and brave this oppressive heat and humidity with my camera. I’m a bit of a wimp after ten years in California.

Lititz, PA. I love the stars and stripes behind the sailor shirt.

A bed & breakfast in Strasburg.

Somewhere over Lancaster County

Kitchen Kettle Village, Intercourse, PA. Yes, you read that right.

According to the Lancaster County website, “the town was originally named after an old tavern, the Cross Keys, and did not become known as Intercourse until 1814. Much speculation went into the origin of the town’s name, but none of the claims have been validated. It’s possible the town was named after an old race track on Old Philadelphia Pike called Entercourse, which later evolved into Intercourse. Another theory pertains of the use of language in the early days of the village, in which the term ‘intercourse’ was commonly used to describe fellowship, social interaction and support – the same values on which the town is still based today.”

Have a great day (or evening, depending on where you’re located) everyone!
