We had a picnic in the city park.
I just want to put in a plug for our GPS. We'd be lost without it (literally) just getting from one place to the other. But the "places of interest" feature that lets us find the nearest campground, city park, motel, or fast food place is amazing. When you're traveling by the seat of your pants as we do, it surely makes life easier. Let's face it, restaurants and city parks aren't listed on maps; and while state parks are listed, they can be hard to locate, not to mention how handy the "places of interest" feature can be when you are looking for Walmart. We've never yet taken a vacation without visiting Walmart by the second day of the trip.
helped the Jews in their country escape to Sweden rather than let Hitler exterminate them. It's nice to learn a little history while you're on vacation.
I believe I've covered the high spots of our trip. It was unbelievably hot, but we survived; and we're ready to head out again at the first sign the current heat wave is letting up.
