Go West!

After our comfortable time in LaGrange, we packed the car for our trip to California. It was a bit more crowded than we expected.

Even though Jonathan took the car to the Toyota dealership (again) at 7 am, he was able to return home with a new headlight and we were packed and on the road by 11 am.

The midwest is at its greenest right now. We spent the day crossing Illinois and Iowa, arriving in Council Bluffs, IA, (across the river from fabulous Nebraska). We passed this truck–at the time I hoped he had a spigot on the side and some go-cups.

We drove down to the edge of the Missouri River, just to have a look and found that this weekend is LOESSFEST, including the Taste of Omaha. May29..2015-021sm

We may give it a try on our way out of town, but since it was raining and involved a shuttlebus ride across the river to Omaha we passed up tonight’s opportunity. We did see the bridge with four huge spiky sculptures on each corner that goes over Rte 80–that was strange and interesting. We may go have a look at the water tower shaped like a coffee pot before we leave. (Oh yes, you ought to give Iowa a try…).

Do you know what the next line of that song is?  A good one for us.

I am a retired archaeologist and I like to travel, especially to places where you can walk along the shore or watch birds. My husband Jonathan and I travel for more than half the year every year, seeing all the places that we haven't gotten to yet.
