North American Tour-Day 52

We got a late start today. Steve had a tough time sleeping due to the intense itching, so he took a sleeping pill & slept in later than usual. Then, he called his doctor in Maryland, who called in a couple of prescriptions to the WalMart down the street a little from the motel. Luckily, we were in an area with a WalMart, so they would be sure to have the meds needed. We had to wait a little while, but not bad.

Once we were on our way, we rode from Des Moines, Iowa to Peru, Illinois, where we’re in another motel. Traveling through Iowa, there were gently rolling hills with field after field of soybeans & corn, mostly corn. Corn as far as I could see. And it’s very green here, much more green than the western states we just went through. No evidence of irrigation needed.

More road construction & alot of trucks traveling with us. Temperature was in the 90’s.

We treated ourselves & had supper @ Olive Garden here. Had a great meal with good wine. We’re both stuffed!!

Hopefully, Steve will sleep better tonight. Tomorrow, we’re headed to Bloomfield, Michigan. This is a suburb of Detroit where my daughter-in-law lives with her husband & my grandchildren. She said they have a pool, so hopefully, we’ll get some relaxing pool-time there. We plan to stay 2 nights with them & head to Ohio Thursday & Maryland Friday. No laundry duty necessary since we’ll be home soon!!!
