Friday I took off work and Nancy and I took the girls on a slow drive east and north. We enjoyed Heartland Acres, had lunch in Strawberry Point, walked McGregor, celebrating the birthday of a cat. We smelled too much at the fish place. We found a hotel, and then dinner where we were scared by polka music & octogenarian dancers. We hid in the cafe and still had a wonderful time at my first salad bar that had more kinds of cheeses on it than vegetables.
Saturday found us driving to LaCrosse via the slow road, then home again.
In a short two days we had a restful fun vacation that included too much driving and just enough fun, conversation, and sleep.
