What a beautiful  day for cruising with the top down to beautiful Amish Country.  We started our cruise going through Shippingport past the Nuclear and Cracker plants  then a leisurely drive via  39 West to 212 West  to Route 62 .  Our first stop was the beautiful Amish Door Village Restaurant for lunch.  There was something on the menu for everyone, including fabulous home made pies. Joe loved the  coconut cream pie so much he had to stop at the bakery where they made up the pie fresh for him to take home. I wonder if the pie even made it home.  After lunch we drove to the quaint town of Berlin with many country shops.  We only had time for a quick over view but it would be a great place to spend an autumn weekend with a special someone. Of course there is always time for  ice cream! Before going home we walked to Troyers Ice Cream Shop with 32 flavors of homemade ice cream, then we all went our separate ways to home.  Thank you Dan and Karen Flanagan  for a full day of cruising in the sun.  This was a wonderful event for your first cruise!
