Visiting Lancaser PA

A while ago we made a trip up to Lancaster (very commonly known as Dutch Country).  I'm a lover of land and space as opposed to crowded city streets.  This town was breathtaking.  Green fields on either side of the road and fresh fruits, vegetables, herbs, and spices in the local store.  We came home with a basket of peaches that were just divine.

I tried to be respectful of the locals.  I understand that I was a tourist myself, but I kept from taking photos of the people living their daily lives.  
Despite this, we did go for a buggy ride and were able to take pictures of the land around us.  
Amish families have such beautiful gardens.  You can tell they are a hard-working and kind and honest people.  I had to take the photo above in case I ever end up anywhere I can plant a garden.  My grandmother's looked a little like this and it would be fun to try something like that some day.  I know nearly zero about planting a garden, but the tomatoes and peppers in buckets out on our balcony put forth an amazing amount of produce.  Can you imagine how much fresh veggies you'd be able to choose from a garden like the one above?

Ahhhh, dreaming.

And of course I had to take a photo of this pretty lady.  Such a majestic animal.
If you ever get a chance to visit Pennsylvania, this is a place I would recommend.

Thanks for reading,
