Our first stop today was the Central Market in downtown Lancaster. Then we went to the Visitor's Center next door. They have a museum upstairs with gorgeous Amish history.
Visited an art school for Darren. Going back on Friday for Open House.
They have a nice gallery with student work on display.
We also visited the local community college which is where he'll probably start out for the basic classes.
It was late when we went to Intercourse and the shops were closed. We're for sure going back in the morning! I LOVE that place!!! Sooooo many shops to go in! And lots and lots of Amish around.
I thought I would want to live in Lititz, but it was pretty much like where I live now and a little further from things than I want to be.
Tomorrow we'll go to Intercourse again and maybe Strasburg if it's not too late.
We hit a horrible storm today. Turned on the radio and they were doing an emergency broadcast for a tornado warning! So, here we were in the middle of Amish farms, flat land, and a little less than 2 miles from our destination, which was CDM Wholesale warehouse. We made it there safely, but it was a creepy thing to look across the corn fields watching for a tornado! When we came out of the warehouse, the sun was shining. I didn't buy anything. I just wanted to browse. While we're here, I will also be checking out Primitives By Kathy, and Keystone Wholesale.
So much to do!
see ya tomorrow night. zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz
