Where I stayed
Stopped at the midpoint between Chicago and L.A. Attempted to have lunch at Midway Cafe but on our way in we discovered they didn't accept cards so on we travelled. Can not believe we’re halfway along already :o!
Crossed the Texas/New Mexico border (we decided to do so on the interstate rather than the old road, as its super dusty and gritty appearance was not appealing to Duke)
Lunch at Rockin Y’s Roadhouse where we failed on having a 'light’ lunch lol
Stopped off at Blue Hole in Santa Rosa – an 86 foot deep hole with crystal clear water and a dark centre where it drops. The weather had got even hotter so I just wanted to jump in but Ness said it was only for snorkelers and scuba divers with diving permits... somehow i don’t think the 1year old with arm bands on had a diving permit but whatever Ness?! At 60F I was probably best out in the warm, plus a wet drive to the motel would have been interesting.
Visited Tinkertown – cute quirky museum with glass bottle walls, old style animated figurines and fortune telling machines which me and Ness of course had a go on. Though Ness didn’t have much luck with them and one definitely got it wrong when it concluded that her one quality was ‘jealousy’. Though it definitely knew what it was talking about on me... ‘expert on everything’ :D, despite Ness’ immediate reaction of 'B*ll*cks you're an expert on everything!'
Had dinner at Frontier Restaurant which was not what we expected..
