Amish in Berne, IN

As we traveled South after the SCIC rally, we stopped at a rest area entering Indiana, and found some maps and brochures.  One described Berne, IN as having an Amish community, so we decided to check it out. 

Berne was a nice little town, and we parked the Bus and used to car to ride around.  We only got a few pictures because Patsy does not like to have the Amish see her taking their picture, so they are always from a distance!!!!

Here are a few………

Patsy had read someplace that the Older Order Amish do not believe in covered buggies, and this must be one of those groups.  I thought these were their convertibles for the summer months, but there were not covered buggies to be found anyplace!!

We left Berne at about 6:00pm and drove past Indianapolis so we would not have to do that in the morning rush hour traffic.  We parked overnight in a Walmart parking lot in Greenwood, IN……. just south of Indianapolis.   We also topped off the fuel take at $2.81/gal.

Today, we will head to another Amish community in Southern Indiana at Montgomery, IN, and continue our trek back to Texas without a plan!
