Ephrata, PA

I have a quilter friend, Howdy, who now lives in PA. We decided it would be great to get together seeing that I was so close. So my friend Karen and I headed over there Tuesday. Howdy lives in a wonderful mid-1800's stone house. I love it. Well, I must admit the steps to the 2nd and 3rd floors were tough. (I had sprained my ankle back on Friday so I was hobbling around.)

Howdy was gracious enough to take us to a wonderful quilt shop and several antique shops. Plus we ate at a couple of wonderful restaurants too.

I have this thing for covered bridges so she made a little detour so I could photograph this one.

The whole area is dotted with wonderful farms. Not the best picture here but it gives an idea of what the scenery was.

And yes, Ephrata is in Amish country. Couldn't miss taking a picture of the horse and buggy. Not bad for taking it out the front window on the move.

Thanks Howdy, for a great day. Hopefully we can do it again.

It was a pleasure to see you again and meet your friend Karen... I hope next time y'all will stay over and we'll have more time to run around and shop hop both the quilt and antique shops.
