We’re on the move again heading in a westerly direction. We left Ohio on Friday and set up for two nights at the Bluffton/Fort Wayne South KOA Journey near Fort Wayne, Indiana. As is typical for us, we made plans on the fly. We made the campground reservations on the KOA app as we were driving. Then we began researching things to do in Fort Wayne. A Yelp! search for Fine Dining led is to make an online Saturday dinner reservation at BakerStreet Steakhouse and an internet search of “things to do fort wayne indiana ” led to the discovery that Beyond Van Gogh: The Immersive Experience is showing at the Expo Center so we quickly scored tickets online! That set the stage for a great day on Saturday. After a leisurely morning, a two mile brisk walk, and a lovely shower at our full hookups site, we dressed for an excursion to town. The Van Gogh experience was amazing. After a prelude of interpretive displays of Van Gogh art overlaid with text describing many aspects of the artist’s life, his philosophy, and excerpts from his correspondence, we entered the immersion room. All around us the walls and floor displayed constantly changing projections of Van Gogh’s vast body of work in a continuous thirty-seven minute loop. It’s a glorious display of his evolving artistic style and definitely displays a great appreciation of his Expressionism. We delighted in the unexpected movements while studying his myriad self portraits! We came away with an even greater appreciation for the man and his art. Then onto dinner. BakerStreet Steakhouse turned out to be a great place for a celebratory dinner. We think they have a special area for birthday dinners for we were aware of three other parties celebrating birthdays! Their Cheesecake Special was a delectable way to top off amazing lamb chop and ribeye dinners. A most memorable day!
