Our friends from TechnoRV invited us to join them for dinner at an Amish Family’s home. In addition to dinner, they would take us on a horse and buggy ride if we wanted to go.
The dinner was excellent. Family style – 17 of us sat around a long dinner table and passed the meatloaf, mashed potatoes, salad, chicken, corn, bread, and apple butter. All homemade. Mostly home-grown. You could see the corn in the field outside the window! It was delicious! So good that I had no room for the homemade apple pie at dessert. But I did share a piece!
We enjoyed the dinner and conversation so much that we stayed for quite a while. Late enough that it started to get dark. It was then that it really sunk in … this house has *no* electricity. They do use propane for their refrigerator and an excellent, bright lamp.
Horse and Buggy Ride
The highlight was the horse and buggy ride. We took a couple of pictures – we were told that it was OK as long as we didn’t photograph our hosts – and I turned the camera to video for a minute as we went clop-clopping down the road.
