Pequea, Pennsylvania High 81 Low 70
It was a nice partly cloudy day. We decided to take a ride
in the country side to see some of the covered bridges in the area.
The first one is by the entrance to the RV Park. It is
fairly long and they all have headroom too low for RVs. The one by the entrance
is the one the GPS tried to take me through on the way here.
The rest of them are scattered throughout the county. I
think they told us there are 29, but we only saw 5 of them.
They all seem to be the same general design and traffic is
allowed through the ones we saw and they all have low weight limits with one
lane of traffic. Only one of them had a date on it and it was first built in
1860. From the sign, I gather that it has been rebuilt.
We found several fruit and vegetable stands. One had small
watermelons for 2 for a dollar. One of them had a little Amish girl manning it.
She had fresh eggs, green beans, and the biggest tomatoes we have seen while we
have been here. She was also selling corn for 6 for a dollar fifty. We had it
and the green beans for dinner tonight. We tried one of the watermelons and it
was not the best I've had, but I have had worse from the grocery store at about
10 times the price.
While driving around we passed two Amish boys going the opposite
direction, and they gave me the air horn sign, except I have no air horn so I
couldn't accommodate them.
We found another fruit and vegetable stand that had peaches,
and we wanted to get some, so we got about 10 pounds from him.
We took Penny with us today and she was good for most of the
way. At one stop I gave her some water and we hadn't gone very far, when she
threw up. I hope she learns to ride in the truck. She seems to be a very loving
little dog, and yes we are getting attached to her.
We have so many pictures, that I will wait to put some more
on the blog.
