We Went to See Intercourse

Pequea, Pennsylvania High 77 Low 57

We ended up having to move to another site this morning. The one we are in now was a lot tighter to get into. As of right now, 6 pm, the Park doesn't seem to be very full.  When we got back from our excursion I did see there was someone in the site we vacated.

We went to see Intercourse…………..Pennsylvania that is. To us the town to us was a bit of a disappointment. There is nothing but tourist shops lining both side of the highway. There were a lot of people, but we were afraid with tomorrow being the start of the holiday weekend, that it probably would be a real zoo tomorrow.

We did go into 4 quilt stores. One was supposed to be one of the 10 best in the US and it was quite large. Part of the disappointment was that there used to be a Quilt Museum on the second floor, but it is now closed. The store itself had a lot of unique things.

While we were there we drove down the street to see the Pretzel Factory. They give tours and let you form a pretzel. You can see from my picture that I thought it was fun.

We saw a lot of Amish buggies, but what do I expect when we are in the heart of Amish country.
There are a lot of roadside fruit and vegetable stands. All we saw were on the honor system. The last one we stopped at even had a can for making change. They all seem to be very trusting.

We left Penny home alone and she didn't seem to get into any trouble. I can’t believe how quick she has become attached to Cindy. At night when we watch TV, she lays on the back of the couch with her head either on Cindy’s shoulder or very nearby.  We got her a little stuffed lamb and she runs around and plays with it a lot. She seems to have a lot of energy.

Tomorrow we might just relax for the day.

Thanks for visiting.


  1. Penny is so cute.
    Great photos of both of you. I guess I've never been excited about that area. Spent a lot of time there and always felt things were more expensive. I've grown to love the Goshen area better.

  2. Looks like you are having fun! We love that area and often camp in Intercourse.

  3. I'm with you Ray Shipsawana is much better than Intercourse, Pa.... The flea market alone in Indiana beats anything I saw in Penn....
