We stopped for lunch at Cheeseburger in Paradise – Exton PA. Very tasty burgers.
We stopped in Downington PA to view the log house built in 1701.
And the 1921 stone arch bridge built to carry the Lincoln Highway over the Brandywine Creek.
We stopped in Gap PA at the old Kullman diner which is now the Gap Diner.
Then we saw our first horse and buggy. We have gone from bumper to bumper traffic the last week to horse and buggies this afternoon. We are in Pennsylvania Dutch / Amish country now. As much as we liked seeing the historical sights around Washington DC, we much prefer the slower pace and scenery of this area.
We drove through this covered bridge.
We are now in Intercourse PA and stop at the Kitchen Kettle Village. This is a fun country market, with lots of Amish vendors selling their wares and food items. The real ice cream made with milk and cream was delicious, so rich and creamy, unlike the stuff we buy in the grocery stores.
Of course we had to buy some fudge. As good as it is, it still is not as good as the fudge we buy at the Route 66 Fudge Shop in Cuba Missouri. We also bought some fresh peaches.
After visiting the Kitchen Kettle Village we drove the short distance to our hotel where we will be staying for a few days before heading further West along the Lincoln Highway.
