The RV park seemed almost empty when we did our walking early this morning and is still very quiet tonight. After breakfast and taking care of a little business, we drove over to Shipshewana, about a 35 minute drive from the campground. It was a beautiful drive and there seems to be a more Amish in that area based on the number of horse and buggies that were on the roads today.
We really had no specific agenda for visiting Shipshewana. We wanted to just look around and visit some of the shops that had been recommended. We started at Yoder’s Hardware. We had been told by someone that if they didn’t have it we didn’t need it. They did have a lot of “stuff” but we left with all our money in our wallets. There were several other shops in that area that we visited. We also visited the E&S Bulk foods. They were very crowded today and we really don’t like crowds right now. The lines were too long to consider making any purchases. However, next door was an outdoor store with many nice furniture pieces for outdoor living. We enjoyed trying them out and the beautiful day. We also stopped at the meat shop, and a bread/sandwich shop and jam store. Of course we made a few purchases. Our chicken salad club sandwich for lunch was really good. We stopped at a park for a little more hiking on the way home. Another nice day!
