These are a lovely group of plants in a median, of all places. Very colorful, and the only redeeming part of this awful heat in my opinion.
We chose to stay at another, similar hotel. It’s clean, it’s expected…except for the bit when we unlocked “our” room only to find it wasn’t ous at all, but already occupied. Surprise!
Walking down the sidewalk in wilting heat this afternoon (why, oh why did I agree to that?) I spotted a shell in the sidewalk. I believe this is not an unusual thing, depending on what kind of cement is used, or where it’s made. It was lovely. Enjoy a bit of a Where’s Waldo moment trying to find it, if you like.
Ask me to tell you a story some day, and I’ll tell you about a puppy hidden in a half-built house, a family who built their house from scrach, and a dead tree stump named Mama.
I don’t notice these weeds in any other place than Iowa. I remember them and clover everywhere growing up, so of course I grabbed a photo.
We accomplished our driving goals today and are ready for a few days of rest in the form of visiting family. This was at one of our stops.
Finding a hotel is hard! Finding a hotel with available rooms is harder. We stopped at three places before booking a room online two and a half hours up the road. It worked out eventually, and progress is good. Regular posting will resume whenever.
