Here we are, in Fort Wayne Indiana. It is pouring rain.
Yesterday we visited with Bill and Connie, Wyatt and their daughter Lacey and her partner Matt and their darling daughter Layla who is adorable. It is so nice to at last see them in their home in Orville, Ohio. It was the first time we have made the journey.
This morning we were in a parking lot, thinking about where we could find a church to go to and the guy in the car next to us, Jerry, struck up a conversation with John. The next thing I know, we are following him to his church, the Calvary Baptist Church in Ashland, Ohio. Jerry introduced us to the pastor who is a transplanted Canadian. A very friendly church with a large congregation, we were welcomed by everyone we saw. As a welcome gift, every visitor receives a loaf of bread. The label quotes the verse “Jesus is the Bread of Life.” and has a welcome message. A very nice idea. We made tuna sandwiches with our loaf this afternoon.
After church, we continued driving west. This part of Ohio is very flat, very wet and the roads are riddled with potholes. We stopped in Tiffin and went for a walk up and down the main streets and along the Sandusky River. The river is flowing fast and is muddy. they have had a lot of rain in the past weeks. The buildings are all very old and the architecture is fascinating. I love the old stone work, the intricate designs.
We continued driving for a while looking for adventure and found a back road that took us along the Maumee river. The rain kept us in the car and we have made it all the way to Fort Wayne Indiana. We have decided to camp here at Wal-Mart. They are open 24/7 so we have access to bathrooms, it is safe and we do not have to deal with wet trees, mud and outhouses.
My favorite Quote:“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” ― Mark Twain
