I had an appointment with a client this morning which lasted an hour or so–and then we were off again. We took a short side trip into Iowa–after all we couldn’t miss this State right?
But before we leave South Dakota and head into Iowa–We surely had to make a stop at the Corn Palace–wow, wow, that was amazing. Get it a”mazing”&
Onward to Iowa…
They have a best kept secret–Iowa Great Lakes–absolutely beautiful. And as we continues on our road trip we ended up staying in Minneapolis for the night.
Met a nice couple from Sweden.
They were on motor cycles–and had saved for two years to spend the summer in the U.S. and travel. But onward…
When we got up the next morning–we just had to see the Amusement Park in Mall of America. We got there early to beat the crowd. Got some great pictures. We sent my daughter a picture of SpongeBob’s house and she showed it to our granddaughter–she quickly ran to get her shoes and shouted to the phone, “I’m coming MiMi and Papa, I’m coming to the party!”
Anyway after that we headed to the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. I almost hit a deer on the way. Phew–close call.
When we got up I got to dip my feet in Lake Michigan. We had dinner with Jeanne Ward and her daughter and headed into Toledo, OH for the night.
When we got up we–we headed over to Fort Wayne, Indiana and got a picture of Johnny Appleseed’s grave.
When we got up the next morning we drove to Charleston, WV and stopped at New River Gorge Bridge to get some great pictures.
Our Summer Road Trip is coming to a close–as we head home to North Carolina. I hope you’ve enjoyed my updates. We had a great time and with only 8 more States to go–I can’t wait until we can share our next trip–and we won’t wait too long I promise.
But listen, if you ever get close to North Carolina–look us up. You can find me on Facebook.
