A Pleasant Ride in the Country
|John, our driver and tour guide shows us a little of the Pennsylvania countryside|
|Campsite which looked onto a cornfield in Amish Country|
|Oh Boy! Shoo Fly Pie.|
|Bird in Hand, Pa.|
|Hardware store, perhaps the oldest in America.|
Amish Rules prohibit riding a Bicycle,
but these scooters are fine.
|Oh no! Here come more tourists.|
When we noticed the alfalfa was harvested wet and in rolls I asked John how that was accomplished without modern machinery. John explained that the Amish have relaxed some of their rules with respect to machinery in order to help keep Amish working on the farm.
|Just woke up.|
|High Tech Amish Solar Powered Clothes Dryer|
|1865 Barn showing peg and beam construction.|
|"The Corn was as High as an elephant's eye...|
|Trenton's Lincoln Motel|
We then got on the highway and headed for New Jersey. We travelled through Trenton, then stopped at the Edison Museum in Edison Township, New Jersey.
|Edison Memorial Tower|
|Last Night before hitting New York City!|
When we checked in to the campground we were told that if the New Jersey legislature does not pass a budget for the next fiscal year by midnight, that the state will run out of money and that we will be asked to leave the campground regardless of the hour. We were told that we could apply for a refund should this potentiality become a reality. Maybe we will get an even earlier start for the city.
