On the Road to Shipshewana, IN

We left on Monday for Shipshewana, IN. So many of the customers in Lavender Lime have mentioned this area---so we had to see for ourselves.

Monday night we stayed at one of the nicest campgrounds we've seen. It is a Hamilton County recreational CG in Cincinnati, OH. We were a little leery due to the location and the fact that it was run by the county, but it was beautiful, clean and spacious. It is Winton Woods and we would definitely stay here again if we were passing through the area. Bentley had to ride arounds in his stroller.

We arrived Tuesday in Middlebury, IN, just and hop, skip and a jump from Shipshewana.

David's dinner.

"The boys", enjoying the views outside.

Our dinner last night was at Das Dutchman Essenhaus ( It was more than a restaurant, but a whole shopping village with bakery, quilt shops, etc. We were very disappointed in the bakery's version of Whoopie Pies. They were small, expensive and almost gone by the time we arrived. The food however was very good. David had beef with homemade noodles served over masked potatoes with a side of broasted potatoes. A little carb intensive. The food did look like the actual picture in the menu. I had the broasted chicken with green beans and broasted potatoes. YUM!

The restaurant was full of items to purchase include many, many quilts hanging on all of the walls. The decor was very warm and comfortable and made me want to go back to the MH and quilt. Yes I brought my featherweight for piecing and an applique project to work on.

Wednesday (today) we are heading to Shipshewanna for the day.
