We paid to do the Boats, Bites, and Bolts tour in Goshen. Apparently a lot of people signed up for this tour as it took two tour buses to accommodate everyone. Our bus driver wasnít quite sure where the dock was and we found ourselves circling a parking lot with the other bus like a wagon train under attack. He had to call to find out where the heck the boat was and where to park. Interestingly it was right next to the Frog Tavern.
Buses coming into the Fairgrounds to pick us up.
Our boat was the S.S. Lillypad II and cruised on Lake Wawasee. Soft drinks were free on board the ship and alcohol was available for purchase. We had a perfect day for cruising the lake and I think everyone enjoyed it.
I took this photo during the cruise. This is just something you don't see on Missouri lakes, at least I haven't.
After the cruise our tour bus took us to Das Essenhaus where we enjoyed a two meat, all you can eat, Amish style family dinner. The food was excellent.

After the meal we enjoyed the Bolts part of the tour in the form of a car show on the grounds of the Essenhaus. There were a lot of antique and classic cars on display. Itís funny, I hadn't seen a Crosley for decades and now with in the last month Iíve seen two. I was given a ride in one still under restoration while we were camping at Rend Lake and now a beautifully restored one at the car show.
This Crosley was a diesel. Notice the kickstand under the driver's door.
