Reason to move to Jamesport #2

AMISH CULTURE.  My wife Gail and I brainstormed for years about where we would like to live after we left the Silicon Valley. We wanted to get away from the overcrowded city and from the rat race of urban life. Sound familiar? We wanted to live in a small town, but one with some sort of cultural attraction. In our hunt for our future home we looked at college towns and places that offered some kind of ongoing intellectual interest. The Amish community in Jamesport was more than we could have hoped for.
Now that we have lived here for 10 years we feel a part of the community and have a deep appreciation for all things Amish. Yesterday I stopped in at the Amish produce auction to take a few seasonal pictures of the fall produce. The colors were spectacular. Mums and pumpkins were in abundance. Jamesport Amish make good friends and remind us everyday of the excellent quality of rural life.
