|We drove 325 miles yesterday from one end of South Dakota to the other. Once we crossed the Missouri River, it became much greener and there was more corn in the fields. Some of it is already harvested. A lot of it in the fields is stunted.
We are camped in a recreation area that was created when a dam was built on the Missouri River. There are many campgrounds around here. Some are operated by the State of South Dakota. We are on the south side of the river and so we are in Nebraska. Our campground is operated by the Army Corps of Engineers.
For $8 per night we are right near a lake on a large site. Our rate is 50% off the regular price because we are seniors. Life is good!
We were here in June 2010 and I was looking forward to coming back. There were few other campers then. This weekend the campground is full. It is a beautiful spot.
We're going out for dinner tonight and we've picked out a restaurant which specializes in walleye.
Monday is another 300+ mile day. Not much in a car, but pretty tiring in a motorhome pulling a car. We're enjoying just loafing around and doing a few odds and ends.
Hope your "holiday" weekend is a good one.
