Where I stayed
I had a great night sleep and I was toying with the idea of staying another night. After breaky - which actually had eggs and sausages and hashbrowns - I went to reception but they were all booked up for Saturday night. Poo. I was really looking forward to a lazy day but oh well...packed up and went to downtown Kankakee.
Wandered around, saw some churches, city hall, and a farmer's market. It was soo windy, I saved a few market signs from flying away. Finally, I got back in the car and headed northwest.
It was not an exciting drive, just a bunch of farmland with lots of manure spread on the fields..yum.
I ended up in Dixon and just was not up for more dull driving. Found a nice Comfort Inn and got a room. My room had these two gift bags and I could see they weren't for me but boy did I ever want to open them!! I peeked in them, held them, smelled them then the phone rang and the front desk was looking to pick them up. The people who had that room had just cancelled and these were their gift bags for a wedding they were to attend. Goodbye fun yellow gift bags...
Had an early night, am tired.
