Today started dark and grey with a cold wind. The young man who would be putting our valances up knocked on the door a little after 7:00AM. We were expecting him and had just finishing our second mug of coffee when he knocked. As he started working, we left to get out of his way, and decided on breakfast at the Dutch Village. Afterwards we stopped at a place that had RV Supplies. Tom wanted to check to see if he could buy an extra set of locking bolts that keep the Jeep hooked to the motorhome and he was successful. After one other stop we took a slow ride around the area before heading back to the Stinger "B". When we got there just before noon the young man was finished and we had seven new valances in place.

I was not sure if he approved of me taking his picture.
|They have two water towers. |
Under the horse and buggy this one says: Embrace the pace.
Upper left: the Stinger "B" is waiting for us
at Wood Design RV Interiors.
We will be back here in July to have our Captain's Chairs recovered and that means we will be doing more exploring of this area and there will be more pictures...😎. For now we packed up, paid our bill, and pulled out of their driveway. After a brief stop at Showalter RV to have measurements taken to replace the gaskets around our two slides which we will also have taken care of in July we headed East.
|Our new Valances. |
They did a wonderful job matching the wood color.
I decided on one above the sink and I am glad I did.
|Leaving Nappanee, IN we followed this Horse and Buggy|
for a bit on US-6 heading East. The clouds are moving
and the blue sky is beautiful to see.
|Sights along our route. US-6 is a two lane highway|
that took us through rural America.
|We traveled this route last April after we left Nappanee|
with estimates for the work we wanted done.
At some point this afternoon we crossed into Ohio and I missed the sign. Our day ended in the Walmart parking lot in Bryan, Ohio.

Leaving Bryan, Ohio tonight we will sleep in Michigan.
|I again tried to get this building with the tower in a picture |
with not luck. The tower is in the upper left.
|It always make me a little nervous when I see these in the |
distance not looking like there is a very high clearance.
As we get closer they look higher.
|It is a dreary grey day and|
|and the front windshield is very dirty.|
|Yet the views do capture my attention.|
|It is hard to tell in the picture but this barn was blue.|
|Fayette Opera House.|
From what I could find out they bring in different musical acts
and rent it our for special occasions.
|Tom saw this and by the time I focused this was what I captured.|
|We passed by a lot of empty corn fields today.|
|As I recall we saw some harvesting as we came|
through in October.
|Having just gone by the northwest corner of Toledo's traffic|
we are now headed north on US-23.
|We crossed into Michigan about 2:50PM and our stop for |
tonight is a RV parking area at Cabela's in Dundee, MI.
Tim Horton's for our Canadian friends
and a flag across the highway.
|After 201 days we parked where we were the night before|
we left Michigan for our 8th Adventure.

The day started with rain but soon the sky started to clear. Only 31 miles to our destination, the Wayne County Fairgrounds, so not a big rush this morning.
|Stepping out in the parking lot this is the sky surrounding us.|
Beautiful big white fluffy clouds with blue sky.
|Goodbye Cabela's; Thank you for your hospitality.|
|You know you are in Michigan when you start seeing|
We are settled into our site which will be home for 11 nights as we spend time visiting with our son and his family. Lots of grandbaby hugs coming our way.
