Turning For Home...

This is the view from our camper at our overnight stop.
We pulled into D & W Lake RV Park in Champaign, IL our first night moving
south. Although it's not far off Interstate 57, it's very quiet and peaceful. We stayed
here previously, and it's such a nice place that we looked forward to returning.
When we make single-night stops, we keep the truck and Flying Cloud hooked up.
Because most of Illinois (at least around the Interstate) is flat, this plan works well.
As Handsome made camp for us, I took Tag for a little walk along the lake.
The wind rustled through the cattails and the sun shone like a warm welcome.
We walked in clover and thanked God (and Handsome) for another safe day of driving.
Tag is the greatest "traveling dog", but I think he was happy to
be out of the truck, snuffling in the grass...and getting his dinner!

Hump Day, and we should make it more than half way home today.
It's so much fun traveling in our comfy home-away-from-home, but
Handsome, Tag and I will be happy to sleep in our "big" bed soon.

There's no rush, so we may yet take a little side trip. We'll decide 
along the way, and I'll be sure to let you know how it goes.
Thanks, as always, for traveling with us. We enjoy having the company!

Good Morning Donna, I trust you had a restful night in our home state. Wish I had made plans to take you, Handsome and Tag for lunch today, you will be just a hop, skip, and a jump from here. Take care have a safe trip...

Lovely spot for an overnight stay. Tag looks very "relieved" to be out in the clover. Keep the Lights On...

Dear little Tag looks so sweet. I am so happy he is a good little traveler. Your trip sounds wonderful. I hope to go somewhere in the Fall.
