As I explored  Elkhart County  I saw so many wonderful  “Kodak Moments”.    Here are some of my favorites:

Nappanee has ” Apple  Picking ” – ” An A-Peeling Art”    in front of  many of the businesses  as a means  to “dress up the streets” and also as a means of identification.  I believe there are 24 now but the number keeps growing.

Beautiful and fragrant  flowers are everywhere in  Elkhart County – always a sign to me of  love for home and community.  This wagonful was sitting outside the Blue Gate Restaurant  in Shipshewana – an absolute MUST  place to eat  – the food was delicious!


Speaking of restaurants,  a couple had special ” Amish Buggy” seating!


I just happened to drive by and fall in love with this relax-and-sit-a-spell porch !

Shops of all kinds in Shipshewana !

What a wonderful  place for  a treasure hunt !


The prettiest rain barrel  I have ever seen!


This was my traveling companion, Tootsie.

She enjoyed  window shopping in Elkhart County too !

Gotta  love those Amish Buggies and the sound of  the  horse’s clattering hoofs as they passed by.
