We left Elk Creek after visiting for awhile and drove down the road to another small town for a short visit with his cousin Bud. They grew up together and who knows what trouble they got into!!
We drove more country roads to get back to the valley and to my sister's home where we had dinner with her and family.
This morning (Sunday) we slept in. It was dark in the room and quiet and the bed was comfortable. We got up and went shopping and then to Jackie's for some much needed visting and another wonderful dinner. We sewed, and did computer/picture stuff while Lon watched baseball and napped. When he got up and sat in the recliner their dog, Carley, had to get in his lap!! She's such a great dog.
I have taken a lot of pictures of the area that I could share, but I don't want to overload this.
We came back to the motel full as ticks, and tired. Ready to hit the sack. In fact, Lon is sleeping already. What a good day it was!! Tomorrow it's supposed to be 108 here so we are headed for the coast - Ft. Bragg. Will be there 2 days. It's in the low 60's so hope we have warm enough clothes! Might have to go shopping again :-) The car is going to be even more loaded when we head home than when we started out. More later. Take care.
