Fall Colors Drive 2016

By Mary Petersen

Rain threatened as the Michiana Brits lined up their Little British Cars in the driveway of Randy and Bev Glanders in Elkhart for the annual Fall Colors Drive. The Brits met at 9:30 with a departure time of 10 a.m. Everyone brought a covered dish or dessert to compliment the delicious chili that Randy always makes.

Usually by October 15, the leaves have already changed colors and are falling. This year for whatever reason the leaves had barely changed and most of them were still clinging to the trees.

At departure time, the tops were up on the cars as it had begun to mist.

Nine cars started out on the drive through the backroads of Indiana and Southwestern Michigan. We traveled around curves, through towns and past lakes.

We drove through the Langley Covered Bridge by Centreville, Michigan.

We ended the morning drive at the Fisher Lake Inn in Mendon, Michigan for lunch.

As we were leaving the restaurant, a Corvette club was pulling in to have their lunch.

After lunch, the rain subsided and the tops on the cars went down.

Last stop before heading home was at Miller’s Mill in Middlebury, Indiana where we toured the cider making barn, tasted the delicious cider and bought some to take home.

The fallen leaves fluttered behind the cars during the drive back to the Glanders. As we arrived, there were a few Brits at the house that chose not to go on the drive.

Randy built a fire to sit around after dinner. Everyone enjoyed eating, talking and watching football. It was a great end to a wonderful autumn day for our Fall Colors Drive 2016.
