Ted and I went to Kathy's today to pick up my camera. I was afraid the battery would need charging on it once I got there...thankfully it didn't need it. We got up early, drove the by pass to get to hwy. 20 near South Bend. We pick Kathy up at her house and took her to lunch here. Das Dutchman Essenhaus. It's a huge complex with many buildings. This one alone is full of shops and restaurants.
We sat in this section , to order off the menu, instead of eating family style serving. This is a view of the counter. The place was full of tables for every number of groups. A family of ten sat next to us here. We ate lunch, walk and shopped the other buildings and came back here for pie. (snack)
This is Ted, he looks kind of tired.LOL Too much shopping. But he was rewarded with praline pecan cream pie. Kathy ordered coconut cream. I ordered a glass of water and ate about 3 bites of Ted's pie and Kathy's. Trying to not eat so much sugar.
This is one of the buildings we went into. It really is like an old cabin. I had Kathy pose in front of the signs in this next picture. She looks like she's going to start laughing.
I liked these dishes with birds on them. Blackbirds. You can see a bit of the wall.
Here's a couple fake bears...so cute. Looks like mom bear and little bear.
Lots of things with birds on them, cutting boards, cups, coasters, towels and trivets.
I really like the saying on this towel, find your happy place. I took more pictures I'll post later. I sure was glad to have my camera back with me. I missed my camera when I wanted to take photos of the snow on Saturday, the sunny skies on Sunday. Our weather has gone back to winter.
Hope all of you are doing well. I'll be visiting soon. XO
