looking at lake erie

It is dark. It is raining. I can barely see the white-capped waves on the lake.

We drove extra miles north of the interstate last night in order to stay at a Fairfield Inn because we love them.

We drove over 400 miles yesterday. We were up at six and on the road around 7:30. Banjo Man drove the first two hours. There was sun, there were farms, it was lovely. My turn came and the trip turned ugly: rain, construction and traffic. For hours.

Finally I had had enough and took the exit to Shipshewanna, Indiana, home of the Amish and many quilt stores. We had been here twice before, so we went right to a huge restaurant and scarfed down comfort food at the buffet.

I took a picture of mashed potatoes, but I hesitate to post it.

Uh oh. Time to hit the road. Pennsylvania and Banjo Man are calling!!

    It has been a long time since my high school geography class so I had to pull up a map to locate Lake Erie and see how it fit into your route home. Now I see it. Thanks for keeping us posted on your trip home.

    I hope you had a chance to stop in at a favorite quilt shop โ€œI Sell Fabricโ€. I love Shipshewanna!
