We took a walk around the fairgrounds to see what was going on, as there were a lot of cars coming in. They were having a household auction in one building. Many tables and boxes of "stuff". Fun to watch for a short time. Then in the next building they were having a "tack" sale to benefit the 4 H riding club. In another area they were having dog training class. There was also a horse back training section. We walked over to the track and there were some horse's training pulling sulkies.
We also took a trip to Nappanee to Focal Wood to see about a built in we were looking for. We ordered a table surround. We have a scheduled installation on the 13th. Driving around the area we did see a number of statues of elk. I believe they are elk, not deer. In other areas we saw pigs, frogs, horse's etc.
We then took a trip to White Pigeon MI. We saw this on the side of a building,
so had to stop. Inside we found a old fashion soda fountain. This one was original from 1920, as told by the owner. But the selection of nuts was not to large.
We went to White Pigeon to check out an RV salvage store, that was suppose to be one of the largest in the area .The store was Bontrager's Surplus. It was very big and well organized. The first photo is all cabinet doors.

The town of White Pigeon is like many small towns with a dying downtown. But some neat old buildings.
We went back to Middlebury to the Rise N Roll bakery. This jam caught my eye
They also had a Frog, Christmas and a Dandelion jelly. We have to go back to get soon more great bakery treats.
They we went to Elkhart and Mor/Ryde for our Independent suspension and disc brakes upgrade. We spent two days in the garage. Well that was at night . They have a 30 amp electric hook up for us. During the day while they worked on the RV there is a nice lounge were you could pass the time. One day we were there at lunch time and they ordered Panera for us. But mostly we did some more touring the area.
