Frozen North

April 20th we flew to Elkhart, IN, the frozen north, it was 37 degrees there and raining.
Chris in San Antonio airport.   

We missed the connecting flight as we stopped in for a quick lunch.  So we had a 5 hour wait. We started with the bar.


then to a very nice restaurant specializing in seafood.

 Fortified to face the flight.

The Inn at St Mary's, South Bend .   The hotel limo was broken so we had to take a cab.  It smelt like someone died in it.

 breakfast was provided and we watched all the developing storms that were coming our way.

 The first glimpse of our new RV, at 27ft it is way smaller than the last one.
Now y'all come in.

On the road to Shipshewana, an Amish town. 

We ate at this restaurant.  It was good very plain food, just like we had in England.  the pies were yummy.  Regrettably the next morning we needed to return to the factory and it was pouring with rain so no super breakfast.

We headed south and spent the night in KY and then visited Makers Mark Bourbon distillery

  1. Interesting post - it seems really strange that in this day and age the Amish community still exists.

    Not good about the stinky cab:0(
