Going to Meet Yvonne for Lunch!

Last week Yvonne and I finally got together again and met for lunch! We have been trying to get together for ages. I decided to take my camera to try and get some pictures because the ride up to Lancaster county is a beautiful ride.  It was a pretty day, bright and sunny and warm. Here are a few shots I got. I left early and there was no traffic so I could stop along the way to get some pictures!
 There are many farms, usually Amish farms along the way.
 I came across this Amish man leading his team of what I think are mules.
 They have to work hard since they still don't use electricity!
 We were meeting in Strasburg so rather than taking the road around the town, I went through the town as I was early. I love this quaint little town and the houses along the main street.

 This is the restaurant where we met; The Fireside Tavern. It used to be The Strasburg Inn and Joe and I have eaten here MANY times over the years. I took these shots to show Joe as the last time we were here it was all a big construction mess outside:) I'm sorry I didn't get a shot of the front of the restaurant.

 This is a B and B in Strasburg. I have had a friend for over 40 years who's Father-in-law owned this home. He was a Doctor in Strasburg. Now it is called the Limestone Inn.
 Their children gave them a gift of 2 nights here for an anniversary gift several years ago so they could go back. How sweet!







 Buggys are a common sighting along the way so I always go slow in case there is one around a corner!

 I hope you enjoyed going along on this little ride with me. Yvonne lives in a beautiful part of our state as those of you who read her blog (www.stonegableblog.com ) know. She is a dear friend and a beautiful person, inside and out.
 
Thanks for your visit.
XO, Pinky

  8. Those beautiful animals working the field are draft horses...probably Belgians. Mules always have the noticeably LONG ears! All are special...
