Shipshewana Double Rainbow

We noticed another new follower has joined us.

Everyone, please join with me in welcoming NICOLE by clicking on her blog site 27 & Counting. What a fascinating young lady to follow, and I really like her Mom and Dad!Laughing out loudThumbs up

Today will be our last day in Shipshewana, Indiana.

As I’m going to post more pictures, they will be smaller. Just click on them to enlarge them.

We planned today to relax, take a drive through the country side, and maybe even stop for a lunch/dinner.

Once you hear the “Clip-Clop” of these horses, you will never forget the soothing sound.DSC_3996

There are many people who just don’t understand the difference between the Amish and the Mennonites. They seem to be almost the same but this link explains it best. After clicking on that link, you now know if an Amish family lives in any particular home or farm in our pictures.

No electrical wires, an Amish family lives there. DSC_3998

As Shipshewana is surrounded by farming, they have a huge processing plant for grain in the middle of town.

We walked up one side, and down the other, looking into the different buildings.

The only thing we did find was some fresh made jelly. No preservatives, just “the real thing” in these jelly’s.

We did find some “great deals” in these two large establishments.DSC_3983

We were working up a hunger so we decided to take in a lunch at our favorite restaurant here in Shipshewana.

This is a “Must Go To” place for anyone visiting this area. Great food, reasonable prices!DSC_4001

After having a great lunch/dinner of chicken, mashed potatoes, beans, etc., we were too full for the fresh baked pie. So we just had to ask for the pie “to go”.

As the day ended, while watching the local weather reports on the TV, I noticed that Ft. Wayne was getting some rain. They were to the south east of us, but the weather pattern was going in reverse of the norm. Wilma looked outside and said “I need the camera, a double rainbow”.

The sky was beautiful!

As the sun began to set, the sky turned from the rainbow to this:

Another “Sky by night, Sailors delight”. So we should have another nice day tomorrow for our travel home.

Until next time, be safe and God Bless.
