    1. The Amish scooter is very popular in the Amish country of Pennsylvania. They are made right there in the area. All ages use them for travel within their community.

  2. There's something to be said for a simpler way of living, but I imagine it's becoming harder and harder to maintain that way of life.

    1. The Amish way of life is inspirational. They cling tightly to their values because they truly believe in them. Their dedication to their religion perseveres. Truthfully, I admire them.

  3. I love Amish photos. We lived for a time in the Lancaster area - Willow Street, and enjoyed it so much!

  4. I always love seeing those Amish horse and buggies. The horses are very brave sharing the road with cars. They work hard those Amish folks.
    I wish we had some to fix things up around here. They are conscientious workers.

    Have a lovely day Annie.
    Hugs,

  7. I wonder if they have a lot of issues with crazy drivers (of the car and truck variety). If I were driving a horse buggy I would be afraid of getting run off the road. I admire them also, McGuffy!

  8. Beautiful pictures. I've always admired the ability to keep craftsmanship and community alive while ignoring the wonderful creations that make our life "better".

  9. one of the cars in the last photo is going the wrong way !!! { ore perhaps the dark colored car just looks as if it's coming towards the buggys } for all its simplicity; I like photo one ~~♥♥

  10. I miss seeing the area. Daddy used to live in NJ and when we went to see him, we traveled the PA Turnpike of course and skirted Lancaster. Time was however, that we went through it. Just to see the Amish.

  12. We used to live there! He was so close to us here...barely 40 minutes!

  13. Yep, I have seen those carriages. And always wonder - what it would be like. But I guess I am too firmly planted in our technological world to even consider.

  14. I grew up not far from an Amish community. Interesting folks.

  15. If not for the two cars and traffic lights, it would be hard to to identify this as the 21st century.

  21. I used to live near a Mennonite community and we always went to their market on the weekends. Oh my gosh.. they made the best butter!! And you could buy a 5 pound container for like $10.00 - crazy. I have a quilt that a lovely group of ladies made - it's just beautiful and well worth the splurge! Thanks to Bill for these lovely shots.
