MORNING BREAKS later in Pennsylvania Dutch country than in Ireland because the latitude line places the Lancaster Amish closer to the equator than the Irish. Our morning light comes through slits cut into the walls of the barn where we have stayed for the past two nights. The barn is the Pheasant Run B&B, certainly the best B&B we have ever visited. The fittings, the furnishings, the welcoming and the friendly horse in the pasture behind our room make this pastoral ambience the most refreshing stay we have ever enjoyed when visiting the States.
I have lived in 15 States and that translates into overnight accommodation through at least two dozen States. It's ironic that the most outstanding one sits less than five miles from where I grew up.
