Summer Sights

The Jersey Shore attracts a variety of visitors from all over.   We turn our heads when we hear a foreign language or see a fancy car.  But the vacationing Amish families create a different level of fascination.

The other day, 2 young women in their “plain” dresses passed me on roller blades.  I knew it would be disrespectful to take a picture- but it was tempting!

The Amish enjoy an ordinary seashore experience – going to the beach, eating at a local deli, and riding bikes around the island.  We only notice because their clothes and hairstyles are different.

I find it reassuring that a simple way of life still exists (not that our life at the beach is so complicated 😉    And, it’s a positive reminder to appreciate other cultures and their traditions.
