Vacationing in Amish Country, Ohio

    This is our first time to visit the Amish areas in Ohio. Its just a little 3 day weekend mini vacation. The Ohio settlement is supposed to be the world's largest Amish community. We brought the new Cyclone toyhauler to a campground in Berlin. Its Scenic Hills. A very nice, clean campground with generously sized sites. Its within walking distance to sveral nice shops on main street.
     On the way out of the campground we already had our first sitings of those traditional black Amish horse drawm buggies.

     We visited a large antiques mall, and just ate supper at Boyd & Wurthmann Restaurant.  It started in the 1930's as a grocery store. It still had the wonderful charm of a time past.
     My husband had their chicken dinner, and I had the chicken salad. Both of us had the warm, and fresh homemade bread and butter. we are usually too full after eating a meal to buy dessert. This was the first time since we have been married that we actually made room. Thankfully so. We both ordered the banana cream pie and it was fabulous. I dont care for meringue, and this was topped with whipped cream.
     We also drove past this great old courthouse. i love the stonework.
        More to come. We arent heading home till Sunday.
