Beautiful Ohio Amish Country


On the way home from Canton, Ohio on Sunday, Mary and I drove through the beautiful Ohio Amish Country.  So quiet and peaceful. 
We stopped at Lehman's Hardware in Kidron.  Very few places are open on Sundays in the area.  We saw several Amish families in buggies, probably on the way to church.   We stopped in front of the house in the photo above to read the signs for eggs and vinegar for sale.  We rolled down the windows and just listened to the quiet, the insects and the breeze rustling the corn crops and the trees... 
What a lovely ending to our trip to Ohio!

Planning on visiting Mary Jane soon, and taking this side trip for sure. Now, would I take the chance and drive all the way into Kentucky? Hmm, something to think about.

You were in one of my favorite areas. Hopefully Norm and I will be able to go in October. He's due home from stroke rehab on Saturday.

Yes, what a great ending to your trip! I have long wanted to visit Amish country -- visions of homemade quilts and fresh apple cider, etc. One day!

This brings back memories of a trip I took some years ago and toured through this area. Even went to Lehman's. Oh I wish to go again some day. It is so serene and beautiful. I am sure you also have toured the Longaberger plant too.
