Ohio Ritual

Every time we travel to Ohio, we make a trip to Amish country. There is nothing better than amish swiss cheese. And I'm a cheesehead by birth/blood! So we make the 30 minute drive each visit. I replenish my spices at the Ashery and pick up a wheel or 5 of swiss cheese. I do prefer spring or summer, but I'll go anytime we get a chance!

You know it's a good place to shop when the amish also shop here!

I love the countryside and although it can be hard to stop for pictures along the hilly roads, we went back for this picture. Something just drew it to me. Unfortunately, I cannot decide which version I like better! I love the color, but the vintage also draws me.

No help around here either. Everyone like both of them. I probably should have asked the cat. :)

We took a drive one day to get a few snowy landscape pictures. Boy, I DO NOT miss all this snow! I'll take our 1 or 2 "days" of snow anyway!

Locke 4...great fishing spot and a nice walk along the canal (about 2 miles) to the town park.

I caught this as we drove by, so we had to turn around for a picture. (That happens a lot when we're driving around.) :)

Our typical drive down to Amish country for cheese and spices! Apparently it's a popular store with the "locals" too! :)
