This was the home of Edmund and Bertha Ball. Isn't it magnificient! I love historic estates. The homes were not open for tours, but are used as part of the campus facilities.
This is William and Emma Ball's prior home. The homes are on a private parkway along a bend in White River.
This is the prior home of G.A. Ball.
Each home had woodland and formal gardens. I thought his path of brick and stone winding through the woods was pretty.
Don't you just love this picture of Roy taking time to smell the flowers!
Touring the gardens was a great way to spend a birthday. We stopped for the night at Pokagon State Park. We're staying a few days. I'll get pictures posted. It's a great park! Monday we took care of my drivers license renewal in Coldwater, MI, as well as, did an early renewal of Roy's and the truck registration. We were even able to update our voters registration. Roy dropped his CDL and other commercial driver ratings on his drivers license, so we consider him officially retired! Monday night we got a real treat when our good friend Earl Fiebig, a long haul trucker, stopped by while in transit. If things fall together for him today, we may get to visit again this evening.
