Hubby1 flew back to California on Saturday leaving me to find my way home. I've never driven across country alone before and have to admit that it was a little scary. But more than scary, I was super excited to get up in the morning and decide what adventures I would have that day.
On Sunday, I headed north to Peru, Indiana to visit a wonderful friend. We had a incredible evening filled with great food and a game of Mexican Train dominoes.
Monday morning I went to see family in Kokomo and then decided to drive to St. Louis to take some pictures of the arch. I made it just in time for sunset which was a perfect time for photography.
Tuesday found me in my favorite state -- South Dakota. I love the way it smells, the scenery, the funny roadside figures....everything. I took the following picture while driving and didn't even notice all the smaller statues. They were a fun surprise when I uploaded the pictures to the computer.
The flamingo and I made a pit stop at the Lewis and Clark Memorial Bridge.
