Indiana Windmill

You may have heard the term "Destination Business", but did not know exactly what the term meant.  In my "neck of the woods", the original Bass Pro Shop in Springfield, Missouri, is an example of a destination business ( ).  It means people have turned visiting/shopping at that business, as the sole reason for their destination to that location.  I had the opportunity to visit another destination business a while back, while touring Amish Country in Southern Indiana ( ).  Our tour included a morning at Linton's Enchanted Gardens ( ).  That is where I took this photo of a windmill, that was located among their nine acres of  creatively landscaped gardens.  This megastore has the well-deserved nickname of being the "Disney of Garden Centers"!!  It also has rental space for what is listed as one of the largest indoor event venues in all of Indiana!  Genesis 2:8 says, "The LORD God planted a garden.....", which makes me ponder the concept, that if God Himself thought planting a garden was important, maybe I should as well!  So, if you are ever in the area of Elkhart, Indiana, make plans to visit Linton's !!  Their phone is 1-888-779-9333.  I know our "garden expeditions" will give us "MILES OF SMILES"!  Tricia
