We were so impressed with how clean and tidy all the Amish/Mennonite farms and roads were in Indiana and Ohio.

I’ll be linking up to Good Fences with TexWisGirl from Run*A*Round Ranch Report.

Tonight our Small Group will be starting up again with some new folks we’ve never met. It will be interesting to see how God puts our group together. I’ll be doing a little dusting and tidying up the messes from emptying our suitcases. The Fall colors are really starting to show beautifully here and there in the Pacific Northwest. How are the colors in your neck of the woods?

While we were in Amish Country in Indiana the Mennonite Girls and our husbands took a driving tour along the Heritage Trail. One of our stops was at the Bonneyville Mill County Park Bristol, Indiana. The Dahlia garden was still blooming beautifully.

We traveled these roads on a Sunday September 25th when many stores and restaurants are closed in this part of our world. The guide says “find surprises at every turn”. We started the trail in Shipshewana and traveled through Goshen, Nappanee, Wakarusa, Elkhart, Bristol and Middlebury before we returned to Shipshewana.

The barn, barn quilt, and windmill were a bonus to see on this stop on our tour.

heritage-tour-125Sunday the 25th of September was our first full day of fun with most of the girls and our husbands. The Manitoba Girls and their husbands arrived in the late afternoon and then all 10 of us girls enjoyed “Faspa” together before heading to our rooms to rest up for the next several days filled with shows, meals, book signings, and travel. It will take several posts to share many of our experiences. Dear and I arrived home last night after the four hour drive to the Detroit Airport and a four and a half hour flight to Seattle. It was good to put our heads on our own pillows last night. We now have to set our inner clocks to Pacific time!
