By The Cocalico Creek, Amish Country, Pennsylvania

Hi Dear Folk,

By the Cocalico Creek, yes that is the name and I think it is so American sounding co and calico.  This is where Marianne and Jerry moved to, it is a home with a view, and what a lovely view across the fields.

Sharing happy times in the kitchen.

And just across the road is the Cocalico Creek, which is lush and green now with all this rain.

Down the road is this covered bridge, they never cease to fascinate me, the way they bend the big arch beams inside.  Here's the gang.

Butcher's Mill Covered Bridge, Lancaster County, built 1881 with Burr Arch Trusses.

Down the road in the other direction.

Chilling out at the end of a happy day.



  1. Glad you had a good day. The photos remind me of the creeks and covered bridges we saw. I never cease to be amazed at the workmanship of the bridges. I love the American names especially the rivers.

  2. What a lovely day with friends! Everyone looks happy and well!

  3. I would love to travel through America one day and find beautiful places like this.
    Thank you for sharing x
