Amish at Play


Two interesting links today. The first link is to an article from The New York Times about a resort in Florida that caters to Plain folks; Amish and Mennonites from Pennsylvania and Ohio (Plain is the word they use to describe themselves). Plain families go during the winter months to relax and play in the sun, just like everyone else. I thought the Plain folk never took vacations. You learn something new everyday.

The second link is to a Blog created by a Plain woman who posts pictures of the Amish enjoying themselves in Florida and interacting with the locals. I found the pictures to be wonderful.

In the purpose of full disclosure, I am not a fan of the Plain folk. My Mom’s family is from Southeast Pennsylvania and my Uncle was a Minister in that area. And so I have a lot of experience with that unique culture. I’ll just say that they are not as cute and cuddly as they appear. However, the men do grow great beards. Peace, Pastor Bill.
