Road Trip ~ Re-routed

This wasn’t the trip we originally planned for today, but we always enjoy a trip up the road to Amish Country.

Bantams.. need some bantams…

Lots of fun and games at recess. Seems it was recess at each of the schools we passed. Such a cold day, but they didn’t seem to mind.

All in all, a very good day, enjoying peace and quiet.
Sending all of you lots of peaceful, quiet, uninterrupted moments. Priceless!

Great photos! I just posted about my trip to Amish country while I was in NY. The houses & schools you posted were the ones I had in mind being clean, neat and tidy. The ones I saw were run down. It surprised me. I would love to live near some Amish country.

Love the pictures..I always enjoyed riding through Amish country when we lived in Wisconsin. They came to my Garage sale one time with a Horse and Buggy and my DD was 4 at the time..I can still remember how much awe she was in. Takes special people to live like the Amish and such a better way to live :)

Jenny said...

Thank you. I needed this peaceful little journey today.

I'm glad I was seeing it from somewhere cozy, though. It looks chilly out there!

Cheryl said...

Lovely photos, you know how I love the Amish, and the spotted critter very pretty!

Deanna said...

We talked about heading out with the cameras this past weekend. Now I wish we had! I was thinking the same thing Patti was. When I took pictures of those kids at that same school house, they were all barefoot! Beautiful pictures.

You must live in the most beautiful part of the country. Gorgeous!

Love this trip and your bee outing! Wish I could share my guineas with you... Keep meaning to post on my (frustrating) experiences with them! Thanks so much for all your kind words. They soothed my soul after Bali's loss.
