Wednesday, June 16
We woke up to overcast skies that cleared and we had a beautiful day in the 70s and low 80s.
We meandered back roads across Ohio - 752 out of Lancaster, 316, and 56 to 40. We traveled highway 40 parallel to Interstate 70 into Indiana. I called ahead to a quilt shop, Stitching Nook, in Richmond, IN, and made sure we had the right directions. Nice shop! I'd go back to every quilt shop we visited on this trip! (And they'd probably all be happy to see me and my $$$!)
After lunch in Richmond (we couldn't bypass O'Charley's), we decided to meander across Indiana. So we started on 38 out Richmond, then 47, Interstate 65 (5 miles), 32, and Interstate 74 to Champaign. For us, it was a long day on the road but only 1 1/2 hours were on interstate highways so it was fun. Champaign is the only major city we have been in since somewhere in Virginia!
We are back in Illinois and will arrive home tomorrow. I feel all the clutter of everyday life returning. We were talking today about things coming up and visitors Friday and Saturday. I'll start a to do list tomorrow in the car as well as a grocery list.
This month has been a great journey. The important destination was Brad, Sheila, and family. Other than that, the journey has been the destination and it has been wonderful. We would love to repeat the entire trip soon!
