June 27, 2015 - Bremen, IN & Nappanee, IN

It rained all night long while we dozed away. There were lots of water puddles around the campground. Where we were there was not, so we were lucky.  

We stopped at Burlington Bike Shop off 2b Road in Nappanee, IN to pick up Edith's bicycle that was left there yesterday.  The labor rate was only $20!  The bicycle needed a new chain, brackets for the fenders, and gear bearings.  He got the hand brakes adjusted.  After getting information from the fellow on how to care for the gear chain we decided to buy a can of Luboil for future uses.

After leaving the bicycle shop we stayed on 2b going west to the town of Bremen, then right on Dogwood Road to 6, left on SR 106. We wanted to see what the town of Bremen was like.  

Erwin shopped at Woodie's Supermarket in Bremen, IN to get some fruits for his breakfast.  He loves having sliced banana, blackberries and sliced strawberries in his cereals.

Edith spotted a water tower with "Bremen" on it and the best view to take a picture of it is from the cemetery lot. Of course, she checked out the cemetery afterwards, but there were no interesting tombstones or monuments.

We went back to the campground, had lunch, rested a while.  Weather was still unfavorable and it started to feel chilly inside the Lil' Home.

The wedding was at 5:30 pm, but Edith wanted to be at the Round Barn around 4:45 pm to start shooting pictures of the preparation on the stage.  It was still too early to get ready for the wedding and there were a couple hours left, so Edith spent time googling on sites for future destinations after we leave IN.

We got dressed for the wedding, drove to Amish Acres in Nappanee, IN.  The clouds looked very threatening.  

Several of Lori and Eric's friends were already in the barn and helped decorate the stage.

The fun continued all night long. We went home early because we were two tired "old" folks.  The wedding was very lovely and we enjoyed every minute of it. The foods were delicious, the cake, too.  There were lots of guests dancing on the floor shaking off the calories.  

All in all, it was a very beautiful day.
