Sunday here in Lancaster is a pretty quiet day. We knew that none of the Amish attractions/businesses would be open, so we planned to have a bit of a quiet day as the last two weeks of the trip are the busiest.
After a day in the car yesterday, I got in an early morning run this morning before breakfast. We decided that it would be a good idea to do a bit of a self guided tour among the farming communities. So we spent an hour and a half just cruising the little towns near by. Found a town two over from here called Intercourse. I kid you not. It used to be called Cross Keys, but they changed it to Intercourse. The hottest selling item in the town is the 'I love Intercourse, PA' t-shirts. It did have me laughing for quite a while. I'm easily amused.
After our tour, we visited the local Pet Smart, for out doggie fix, and to see what we could get the boys, and to allay of guilt for leaving them for so long. There is a 'Bret Michaels' (from the 80's/early 90's hair metal bad Poison) range of dog collars and leads, as well as a Martha Stewart range. It seems that everything needs some form of celebrity endorsement before people buy it. Even Oprah endorses the shit coffee at Starbucks.
After lunch we had a quick look at the outlet centre to see if I can get a replacement for my purple suede's but no luck there. We headed out to a place called the Amish village that was formally an Amish house and farm. Had the 45 minute guided tour of the house and our guide was really informative. He wasn't Amish, but has spent time with them and had a really good understanding of their way of life. Back to the motel now and we will be having a bit of an early night. Got an 8.30am tour tomorrow morning of a couple of working Amish farms and we need to have had breakfast, packed the car and checked out by then.
Tomorrow afternoon it's off to Washington DC for Monday and Tuesday night, then Wednesday and Thursday night it's a couple of nights on the road (with a stop at the Richard petty Motorsports shop in Charlotte), followed by Friday Saturday and Sunday in Savannah. Busy week coming up.
