... is what we did today and a few fun facts about our trip.
I wrote earlier about Wall Drug signs. There were no Wall Drug signs yesterday because we were in the state park for a lot of the day. Today I counted the signs from 45 miles away from Wall Drug. There were 61 signs advertising Wall Drug! There were several times that I could see 3-4 signs in one look. Actually I find it a bit fun to watch ...
... cottages'. They are fishing mad.
Then were went to New Ulm, which was settled by the Germans. It has a Glockenspiel in the centre. Then on to Sleepy Eye where we saw the house they used to live, and saw the monumemt to 'Sleepy Eye', a local chief of the Soiux tribe, whom the town is named for.
We ate dinner at the local restaurant and Grace and Carroll met several people they knew who were surprised to see them. We were introduced as their son Michael's New Zealand ...
... on 4 levels, and the bottom level has 'Disneyland' type rides and arcade games etc. It is a central core which the other levels are round.
Then we headed for Grace and Carroll's home in Waseca, about 2 hours drive through South Minnesota. The trees are just starting to change colour here, and Keith heard on tv the % count for how much colour there is in the trees! Only 20% here, but 50% further north, so we might see more as we head to Canada.
... see all that we wanted to on the way back. We don't want to push ourselves and we may cancel all the appointments on the 16 which we are coming home for in order to not feel rushed or stressed. While there are some stressful moments in driving, once we are set up, the RV laziness sets in and all is well. Because we only want to drive five hours a day or so, we may not get to stay in any place longer than a day and that will certainly give us plenty ...
... we made a trip down to Hyvee the local grocery store to get the rest of the ingredients for Pavlova and I saw heaps of stuff that we don't have in Australia as well as finding out just how ripped off we get on american goods at home. Will have to make another trip there before I come home to stock up!. Looks Like my pavlova has worked so hopefully everyone who comes tomorrow will enjoy some!
Time for bed now though so until next time xx
