FINAL BOARDING - ALL ABOARD - NEXT STOP LANCASTER !!


Thursday, June 25, 2009



THIS IS MYSELF AND LECATES ON THE OPEN CAR FOR THE TRAIN RIDE TO PARADISE AND BACK THAT WE TOOK IN LANCASTER. WE HAD ARRIVED EARLY AND WAS AWAITING THE ARRIVAL OF ANOTHER SPARKLER AND A DAY FILLED WITH LAUGHTER, CHATTING, AND ENJOYING THE COUNTRY SIDE. THE TRAIN RIDE WAS AWESOME AND WE GOT TO SEE SOME OF THE AMISH AREA IN LANCASTER, AND EVEN A FEW RELATIVES OF ANOTHER SPARKLER ( THEY KNOW WHOM THEY ARE HEHE).



THE COUNTRY SIDE IS SIMPLY AMAZING AND A MAZE AS I SOON FOUND OUT - ITS A GOOD THING THAT LECATES WAS KIND ENOUGH TO BRING ME UP HERE, AS SHE ALSO WAS THE PERFECT TOUR GUIDE, RELATING TO ME ABOUT THE HISTORY OF THE AREA AS WELL - FOR INSTANCE, MONDAY IS WASH DAY FOR THE AMISH, NEVER KNEW THAT...



THAT MAZE WILL BE SOMETHING ELSE IN THE FALL WHEN THE CORN IS AS HIGH AS AN ELEPHANT'S EYE !!

EVENTUALLY WE GOT TO PARADISE AND THEN THE ENGINE HAD TO BE TURNED AROUND BY A COUPLE OF HANDSOME ENGINEERS....



ONCE THE TRAIN WAS RE ATTACHED, WE HEADED BACK TO THE STATION AND I WAS ABLE TO GET SOME MORE WONDERFUL PICTURES TO SHARE WITH YOU ...






BY THE TIME WE RETURNED TO THE STATION, IT WAS GREET AND MEET TIME, TO MEET UP WITH YET ANOTHER SPARKLER WHO WOULD BE SPENDING THE NIGHT WITH US, IT WAS CLAUDIA TIME - NOW THE FIRST PIC DID NOT TURN OUT SO GOOD BECAUSE IT WAS TAKEN WITH MY CAMERA AND I HAD FORGOTTEN TO TAKE IT OFF THE SETTING IT WAS ON FOR THE COUNTRY SIDE AND SET IT FOR CLOSE UPS. BY THE TIME I REALISED MY MISTAKE I WAS ABLE TO FIX IT FOR THE PIC OF CLAUDIA AND LECATES....




WELL THAT WAS THE MORNING - NEXT EPISODE - THE AMISH COUNTRY FARM AND THE BURN QUEEN, NOW STAY TUNED CAUSE IN THAT ONE YOUR GONNA GET A MILK THE COW LESSON..... AND I AM NOT SAYING NO MORE.... NOPE NOT ANOTHER WORD TILL TOMORROW - HEHEHEHE emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Just wanted to say how much I have enjoyed your blogs of your vacation.
I have never been to Amish country but am sure it is interesting.

Next issue "how to milk a cow"? For those of you all who didn't grow up doing it, that is probably quite an experience.
