For some reason I only pulled my camera out one day over this past Lancaster County trip, but it wasn’t too bad for taking photos.  Hope you enjoy:

The farm at Blue Gate, right off the main 30 highway, happens to be the first place I stopped when I sold books in Lancaster County in 2007.  I’d never had any of their baked goods though.  Good snitz pie and Rice Krispies bars.  A sign inside the door said they were changing ownership in a couple of months.

The happy creation below was made by an employee at the Country Style Deli at the Markets at Shrewsbury.  I have a ritual of sorts that Shrewsbury/Country Style is my last Amish stop as I leave Pennsylvania (the market is about 5 miles from the Maryland border in southern York County, after you’ve been driving close to an hour after leaving the Lancaster settlement).  It’s a stop that comes in handy if I forgot to pick up any pies or canned goods.  This is also where I get my road sub, and this time I took one of these oyster pies along too (the crab balls get a big thumbs-up too).
