Autumn Vacation 2009, Day 3

After saying goodbye to the beauty of the Bed and Breakfast, we took back roads to travel south.

Can you see the shocks of corn in this field?  It was the only sight like this that we saw.  The camera didn't do justice to the colors of the trees in the background.  Such beauty!

Arriving at Kendallville, IN, we found a GREAT thrift store.  Another story for another day.  Then we located a coffee house that advertised having wi-fi.  We wanted to catch up on emails and blogging.  Unfortunately, it was very slow, so we just did the necessary stuff before picking up a few breakfast items at WalMart.  We rolled into the cottage mid-afternoon, unpacked and headed for local eatery - The Woods Too.  Fine meal.

Back to the cottage to watch Joy Luck Club (a tear-jerker) and Oh Brother Where Art Thou? (or something like that.  Funny with all the cliches of the Old South thrown in.)  Then we enjoyed a cup of decaf coffee and shared a piece of turtle cheese cake.


  1. I am so enjoying your vacation Rebecca, sounds as you are as well.....keep having a wonderful time and sharing with us.......:-) Hugs

  2. Hi, It looks like you are having a nice leisurely fall trip. If you have the time.. please share about the thrift store in kendalville. Frank and i sometime take the long backway to see the grands, and we go through kendalville. Do you think the Amish do the cornstalks that way? It is nice of you to share your trip with us looky lu's.:)

  3. Sounds like you are having a great happy for you. That b & b is just gorgeous.

    blessings and hugs,


  4. Again another relaxing day...I loved the book Joy Luck Club and thought O Brother Where Art Thou was very funny...loved the music in it.

    Take care,

  5. I think there should be two words to describe vacation--one for what you are doing, relaxing, slow paced, relational, restful. There should be another word for vacationing that involves historic sites and museums and taking in as much as possible because you might not get a chance to return. I really love both kinds of vacations. Both kinds fill my cup and I sense that the same is true of this vacation for you and Gary.

  6. Where is the cottage? It must not be too far from home, if you're back in Indiana. Sounds like so far you are enjoying a relaxing time. Donna

  7. Sounds like a wonderful time Rebecca! I am glad that you and your husband are able to enjoy the time together and I hope that he is doing well! I can't wait to hear about the thrift store, one of my favorite places to go.
    Love Di

  8. DONNA, The cottage is on McClish Lake - north and a little west of Fort Wayne.

    DEE, I'll write you on facebook about the thrift store. Prices were VERY low. Books were priced TOO low! I don't need one more, but I couldn't resist

    ALL OF YOU, it was great to have you "along" via the blog. Thanks for coming.

  9. Please...could you give me your exact location!
    I want to join you! You are having a lovely time....and I'm sooo happy for you. Thank you for the photos....and sharing your vacation with us!!
