(Ron Writing) The weather was much more pleasant today – mostly sunny and in the high 60’s. We left Bloomington, IL heading northeast on I-55 for a short distance to US-24. We then drove straight east on US-24 to Reynolds, IN. This was a very pleasant drive through very nice farming areas and small to medium sized towns. For the most part both the towns and the farms are very neat and attractive. I’ll bet the farmers are all hoping for a few days without rain so they can get in the fields and get the crops planted.

From Reynolds we headed straight north up to Westville, IN which is just a few miles south of the Lake Michigan. From there we headed a short distance northeast on IN-2 to La Porte, IN. We arrived mid-afternoon and went directly to the La Porte County Historical Society Museum which AAA rates as a “gem”. Like many city and county museums its collection was quite varied and had many items and collections donated by local residents. We usually skip most of these museums because they tend to get very repetitive and often the items are not displayed very well. This museum had some of that but it also had many displays that were very well done and some outstanding collections. I took a few photos so you can see a little of what we saw.

We were at the museum until late this afternoon and then drove to Wal*Mart where we are parked for the night.
