What a beautiful drive we had on Sunday from Celina, Ohio to Elkhart! We followed Route 30 and then 33 thru the Ohio and Indiana farm lands, and it was just lovely.
One small town after another invited us to stop; each farm looked like it was waiting to have it's photo pasted on a postcard. The barns were especially attractive, waiting for their Autumn attire to be full blown. Because it's been sunny and warm, the flowers were still blooming colorfully.
One of our favorite areas has long been the land of the Amish. Each fall or spring we would visit Lancaster, PA, along with our kids, to enjoy the countryside and partake of the Amish goodies that abound there.
This was our first real taste of the Amish lands around Elkhart. The Amish here are a bit more progressive; they all seem to use electricity and blend into the outside world a bit more than some of the "old order" Amish in Lancaster do.
Have you ever seen a "Pet Wash" before??? This Pet Wash caught our eye at the local car wash.....so you can easily launder your mutt!!!
