Exploring Ohio

I know we have lived here since November. You would think we would have already found all the cool places and fun stuff to do. We really haven't though. We have been working and it has been cold. We have finally got things situated, the weather is warmer, and the days are longer. Time to get out and find out what all is out there.

So finally to day we did the main thing I have been wanting to do. We visited one of the Amish communities near by. This week we went to the Wheat Ridge community. We chose that one because it is on my way to work when I go to Adam's county and if I find something cool it is only a hop skip and a jump to go by on my home.

I had to remember that I am only a few miles from there at least once a week and that I have already been to the store for this weeks groceries. It would have been very easy to buy and buy and buy but I was able to show some restraint.

I did find a few things that I was really hoping to find though. I got local honey and local made apple butter and pumpkin butter plus as you can see I got a few other things.

We also drove across an old covered bridge which is really amazing.

Here is the first place we went:

This was my favorite and was really amazing. It is family run and I love the story of how the place came to be. Here is the link to their webpage.

Next we drove (slowly behind and Amish buggy) over to the next store we went to:

Here is the link to their store:

I like both stores and can't wait until we haven't just been to the store and I can stop by and get meats and cheese and dairy.

It was a great day and I can't wait until our next exploring Ohio adventure.
