Thursday and Friday:
Rend Lake

Yesterday and today were travel days.  The weather was HOT, but it was cool in the camper.  Thursday night we stayed in Russell, Ks, and Last night were were in Missouri.  This morning we got up and decided to go to Cracker Barrel for breakfast.   The closest one was St. Charles MO about 50 miles from where we spent last night. 

Breakfast was good, but the service was not the usual Cracker Barrel.  We are used to the server being friendly and courteous.  Our server was Curt.  I think we messed her up, when she asked if we wanted coffee.  We did but we already knew what we wanted, and ordered.  I think we through her off her routine.  Harris ordered half caffeine coffee and half decaf, for his first cup with the rest of his refills being decaf.  Well that didn't happen.  I asked for blackberry jelly, but never did get it.  We also asked for water, which finally came without a straw.  I think I got one refill of coffee.  We are used to being asked if we would like a cup of coffee to go,  Not today.  Glad that didn't set the tone for the rest of the day. 

We were heading for one of our favorite camping spots, so nothing could spoil our moods.  We arrived at North Sandusky Corp of Engineers Park, outside Sessor, IL around noon.  We didn't have a reservation, but found a campsite for one night without a problem.  They had plenty of great campsites. 

After getting set up we fixed lunch.  Since it was so hot and muggy outside, we decided to eat inside.  Then it was time to head to town to Walmart for some groceries.  Then it was off to our favorite ice cream place called the custard stand in Sessor.  It is the only place I can get vanilla ice cream with orange sherbet. 

Back to the camper so Harris could re-string one of our blinds and fix dinner.  Steak, corn on the cob, and mixed veggie stir fry. 

Tomorrow, we will either spend another day here or head to Nashville.

Have a good day.
