LaGrange & Shipshewana

Sunday we attended the Methodist Church in Lagrange where Pastor Chris is the senior minister. We were so happy to see him and his wife Carolyn. They have a lovely church building and many friendly people there. \

Afterwards we went to Gene Stratton Porter's home in the Limberlost. The ranger at the visitor's center answered all of my dad's questions about Gene's life and death. He knew a lot! (my dad).

Monday we moved to Shipshewana to the South RV Park. Our site was beside a pond where the resident duck welcomed everyone. We drove around and saw many Amish and Mennonite people, buggies, homes, stores, etc.

Tues. we went to the famous Shipshewana Flea Market. It is quite large. There are over 900 booths which feature closeout items, clothes, kitchenware, tools, hats, party paper products, plants, vegetables, make-up, antiques, furniture, lawn decorations, etc. It was 4 hours of solid walking. Then we walked over to the Bluegate Restaurant to meet Pastor Chris for lunch. He was kind enough to drive us back to our car.

We had a beautiful sunny day and a gorgeous sunset. The cats are happy!
