Beautiful drive through the country – no interstates – and watched the men and women work the fields – always busy and impressive.
Short drive to the Ardnt’s farm – Connie and Ardan are friends we met in Tucson while wintering in the south. They have 26 acres – no longer farming but have grown trees to protect the Indiana Bat.
Got our coach parked on a lane – we will be boon docking next to another’s farmer’s field.
Ardan gave us a ride around the acreage in his Gator (miss mine) – so much reminded me of the 25 acres we once owned and the paths I would show others around.
I apologize that I don’t have pictures of our hosts – I stole this one off her facebook.
Dogs are enjoying the freedom to run.
Lots of Mulberry trees – a treat right outside our door.
We did a tour of the family farms still in existence and was able to see where Connie and Ardan grew up. Out to dinner for perch which I haven’t had in a long time.
We played cards in the evening – guess who won.
Saturday had breakfast at the house – fresh blueberry pancakes and bacon and cinnamon buns with honey – Connie raises bees.
In the evening Connie’s daughter and SIL hosted a picnic and fireworks to celebrate Connie’s son and family coming to visit from Redmond, WA.
Great time – got to meet many of the family members.
Sunday we went to church – the Ardan’s are LCMS too.
Then back home and loaded the coach to get ready to go. The great thing about visiting friends in the country is they always load you up with extra produce and food items – they don’t want you to go hungry. Great time!
We are off to Indiana Sand Dunes State Park.
