Most things were prepped before I went to sleep on the 1st, but it still was late morning when I left my sister’s place. It’s always hard to say goodbye to family and friends. I stopped by my grandmother’s place on the way out of town, but she wasn’t home.
I made my way SouthEast of Ft Wayne to visit my friends, Jeff and Daisy. They own a farmhouse out of the city set on about four acres and surrounded by a farm. It’s very peaceful and a good place to relax for a night before going back to the solo trip. The weather was nice so we spent some time sitting out in their yard at a table, talking and playing with the animals. I took a few pictures of the surrounding trees and landscape.
Their daughter played an unusual drum performance for me. I noticed she’s grown a ridiculous amount since I saw her last, six months ago. She’s definitely inherited her parents’ quick wit. 🙂
We went into a neighboring town for dinner at a Mexican restaurant. Afterwards, we picked up some snacks and drinks for the night. I took a picture of a restaurant with a name and sign I found amusing.
We returned to their home to play Scrabble while watching the Cubs win the World Series! Jeff took the Scrabble victory. Daisy fell asleep and Jeff and I talked a bit before calling it a night. Their cat, Piggy, slept next to me for half the night.
