My Favorite Place

A few photos from our trip to Lancaster County, two weekends ago ....
( have you made the discovery yet, that my favorite place is Lancaster County, PA?)

(click photos to enlarge ... there is some blurriness to a couple of the photos because they were taken through the windshield of the car while we were traveling)

Amish boys working in the fields


Amish farm, making use of bag silos


A dear little family on the Strasburg train .... the camera is almost as big as the little girl



Horses gently grazing .....


Beautiful stone farm house sitting next to The Red Caboose Motel


Amish boys maneuvering the busy streets ..... notice the bare feet


Lush Amish gardens ....



... more to follow, because it's just ridiculous how many photos I come home with after any given adventure

I'm sorry for my continuing slowness in catching up with your own wonderful blogs.   I'm feeling pretty good today, but the entire last three weeks have been rough.   I hope I'm now on the mend .... being sick is wearying.    I have a whole renewed sympathy for those who live their lives in chronic pain.

Don't be worrying about catching up, no one expects you to. Just jump right into today with us if you're up for it :-)
It's so wonderful to see life through your lens again. You've captured something with your camera, a feel, and brought it vividly to life. Love these shots, including the little grey donkey on the farm and those ponies love the fuzzed out backdrop of the last one and the little guy beating it up the street in bare feet!
