A much better day

Well we took our time today since we knew Elkhart was a short drive. Got our workout in and showers before packing up and leaving. I think we are both ok with moving even if is for only one day. We drove up on IN 5 to try and miss some of the construction and the nice part is it took us through Shipshiwana. I've read about this Amish area but have never visited. We have Amish communities just south of us in Iowa at Kalona and there are Amish in both the Decorah IA area and southern Minnesota which we are through from time to time so I find that a more normal occurrence then some might. We treat many Amish families in the Iowa Dental School also. I have to say though I was very impressed with what we saw. Many of the farms were right along the highway, we saw many buggies and even a team of horses taking some harvesting equipment to the field. In one field we watched as they were harvesting corn. It is definitely different from the huge combines we see routinely in Iowa. We really weren't able to stop at all but I hope we get to explore this area a little more before we leave, If not I guess we will just have to get back.

This afternoon we pulled into the Elkhart campground. It is built for RVs so no worry about level spots and we even took a pull through. With our Escapees discount we paid less here than we did at Chain O Lakes and we have full hookups instead of just 30amp service only. The ambiance of the place isn't much but it is a good stop over for this area. We wanted to go to the RV museum but we arrived later than we thought (really just because we slept in) and we had to make a stop at Wal Mart and Lowes.

Followers Judy  and Emma asked where the Flamingo has been on this trip. Well, John is making him a new roost so he hasn't been up the last few nights. The trip to Lowes was all about the flamingo so soon he should be showing up in the photos again. Tomorrow its on to Goshen where we get to stay put for a few days Yeah!!! Until then Happy trails...
