... folks by my post yesterday, sorry. We are still at Coralville Lake. Yesterday we went sight-seeing in all those places. Tomorrow we head for Portage, WI. It will be a longer day than we have driven the last couple of times, since it is a little over 200 miles from here. Hope everyone has a good day tomorrow (or today depending on when you read this).

or was settled by Dutch who came to USA to escape religious persecution
back in Holland. They are now being outnumbered by the "outsiders". They have certainly kept their culture alive and it is a fascinating place
with lots of windmills, an old village/ museum and lots of history, a
canal and lots of amazing shops including the bakery and meat supplier
