Recently my husband and I went to Clark 
with a church group and we wanted
 to go back again to a few more
 of the places
 we had missed.

Most of us have been to visit an Amish
community some time in our life and I
always admire how neat everything
looks.  As you know, they really prefer
no photos so I took these from inside 
my car at a distance and this one
is blurry but she is shaking out a rug.

So the homes are heated by
wood burning stoves and 
have no electricity.

It has really been gorgeous this week
and we have loved the weather.  I was
able to take time and really look at
everything on this trip.

We bought some homemade
 bread and baking supplies
 which they sell.  I have never
seen these gadgets below which
I am looking forward to trying
when I make my next pie.  You use 
them to cut the pie top dough and it
presses a design into the top piece:

I am sure it was nice though!

We noticed horses eating the grass in
several areas....who needs lawn
mowers if you have horses!

I live in Amish country in Lancaster County PA. I’m always interested in the differing last names, and the differences in head coverings, clothing, and buggy styles.

Looks like you had a great visit!

I admire the Amish for their simplicity of life.

I dislike the Amish for their Puppy Mills. I know that they look at dogs and cats as domestic animals no different from other farm animals. BUT Puppy Mills are disgusting. We had a rescue that was an Amish pup. Nervous, poorly bred and sickly.
