I read in a humour story book this 'vini vidi Visa - I came, I saw, I shopped' - just thought I'd share!
As Carroll had to work this morning, Grace took us out and about. First we went to a local craft fair, Called 'A Touch of Class', which was nothing like our fairs. It was on a farm and it had barns full of stuff, lots of halloween, autumn, and Christmas things. They were in old barn type buildings, and instead of baskets to put your shopping in, there were metal ...
... 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 Carrolls 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.
... We had a really nice site next to the lake with beautiful views. It was great to be back in a state park again! It is definitely harder to get a site at state parks now that it is summer. They tend to book up quickly but some do have first come, first serve sites so if you arrive early enough you may be able to get one.That's what we ended up doing with Myre-Big Island and we're really glad it worked out! ...
... stop in Minnesota.
The surprise of the day was Taco King in Albert Lea. Christina and Raul Campos own this authentic restaurant in downtown Albert Lea with made to order burritos and tacos.
We are feeling wide awake and driving through the night to have more time in the Badlands tomorrow.
