Final Days at Bremen, Indiana

Friday was an open day to do whatever. In preparation for our move on Sunday morning to the FMCA International Rally in Bowling Green, Ohio, bed linens and other laundry was done. We then traveled about the area. We stopped at a couple of the quilt gardens (there are 16 throughout Elkhart County) in our travels. We ate lunch at American Countryside Farmer's Market, a big, new market near Elkhart. Friday evening we had a catered dinner and then we played card bingo.
Today, Saturday, we started with a catered haystack breakfast. A haystack consists of potatoes, sausage and ham, scrambled eggs, a cheesy sauce and toasted bread cubes on top. It was very good. In the afternoon we went to Amish Acres to see a play, "Good and Plenty", about the Amish life. After the play we had dinner at Amish Acres, family style dinner of fried chicken and beef with the trimmings and pie for dessert. Very good and plenty to eat.
Tomorrow we go for Bowling Green about 135 miles to the east as a group. There are 39 units going in together so we need to leave Bremen between 7 and 7:30am to get there by 11:00am.
