7-25 to 7-26-2019 Short Trip to Northern Indiana

We went to northern Indiana Amish Country to work with a client up there. After work on Thursday evening we drove over
to South Bend to walk around downtown. First we walked along the riverwalk by the East Race Waterway, a man-made
channel that was used by mills back in the 1800s, but has now been transformed into a whitewater kayaking/rafting course.

We walked to the mouth of the waterway where the East Race Waterway joins the St. Joseph River.

We saw a mother duck feasting with her ducklings in the canal.

We wandered over to the downtown area and found a nice statue.

We saw that several restaurants downtown were offering Restaurant Week deals, and we chose to try South Bend Brew
Werks because they had a good deal and yummy sounding vegetarian food for Cara.

Their gazpacho soup was light and refreshing.

The roasted jalapeno cheese dip was nicely spiced and served with hearty, warm tortilla chips.

Cara's Buffalo Cauliflower Wrap was delicious, and Eric enjoyed his Dill Chicken Salad Sandwich.

We each got a giant peanut butter cookie (gluten free) for dessert.

Evening view of the St. Joseph River on our walk back to the car.

After we finished work the following day we headed to nearby Shipshewana to our favorite Amish cheese shop. 

We also stopped at the discount grocery to get good deals and some freshly ground cinnamon
peanut butter.

The Amish shop here too, as you can see.

Before we met up with another business contact we killed some time checking out small towns. This is downtown Ligonier.

We also found another fabulous discount grocery near Wolcottville.

Then we found a lovely tasting room and event center called Sylvan Cellars outside Rome City.

We enjoyed a drink on the nice patio, where they were going to have live music later that evening.
