We have visited many interesting places over the last few days. We toured George's Woodcrafts where skilled craftsmen design and build custom furniture. The quality of the work was amazing and the gentleman who took us on a personal tour was obviously proud of the work done there and willing to share with visitors. We visited the National Watch and Clock Museum which included 12,000 treasures of time from sundials to modern marvels. We also saw a demonstration of the Engle monumental clock which had 48 moving pieces(including Jesus,12 apostles, and the devil). Last stop that day was the Turkey Hill Experience where Clarence got to pretend he was a Pittsburg Steeler. It is mostly a kid oriented place but we did get their ice cream and their iced tea which they sell in this area. We had several opportunities to ride through this beautiful countryside and to see the Amish and Mennonite homes and farms and to visit the little towns of Bird-in-Hand and Intercourse. One was a small tour bus ride with a guide who told us about the area and stopped at a place that sold "to die for" soft pretzels. We visited many of the little shops and ate at restaurants offering Pennsylvania Dutch cooking. We saw an amazing team of 6 horses used in bailing hay right next to where we were camped at Country Acres Campground. The highlight was on Tuesday when Sandy's University of Florida room-mates, Geri (and husband Pat) and Helene came for a visit. Geri was headed to Reading, PA to meet relatives who participate in a yearly cancer walk for the cure. Helene lives in Oakton, VA near D.C. and drove over to see both of us. What fun to walk down Memory Lane together. I am so blessed to have so many really special friends in my life.
