I’ve had three different blog readers ask me if we have seen Lebanon Levi or any of his cohorts from the Amish Mafia television series, which is supposedly set in nearby Lancaster County, Pennsylvania.

Wednesday the water was out in the C loop here at the Hershey Thousand Trails because somebody ran over a water bib and broke it. When we woke up yesterday morning the power was out in the whole park and they had also shut off the water until the power came back on. So basically, […]

On our last visit to this area we discovered a great place called Jack’s Country Store in Ocean Park, twelve miles up the Long Beach Peninsula, that really impressed us. So yesterday we went back for another visit. Jack’s is like the old time general stores we have seen in the Amish communities of Indiana, […]

We spent yesterday exploring the back roads of Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, and what a wonderful time we had! This is the heart of Pennsylvania’s Amish country, and on every back road we traveled we saw Amish farms, usually with laundry hanging on clotheslines, and livestock in their pens.    This swaybacked horse looks like he’s […]

It rained all night Saturday night, and when we woke up yesterday morning, we were greeted by a gray drizzle that lasted all day long. The temperature never got over the mid-60s, and heavy clouds hung low over the rolling hills of Lancaster County, Pennsylvania. We drove back to the Giant Center and finished setting […]
