Cold Spring, Minnesota

We stopped in Fargo for one night after leaving Minot and had breakfast with Sean, Rachelle, Danika and Daniel. A nice but too short of a visit. We will be back to see them at the end of our stay in the Cold Spring area.

Since our reservation at El Rancho Manana didn't start until June 10th, we stayed in front of Dave and Dorothy's garage in Rockville, Minnesota, for three nights. All the pictures posted on this entry are from our walks in the beautiful Eagle Park.,

We have been busy visiting with family members since we arrived. It is like we did in Minot. No obligation of "having to" visit anyone, but making time every few days to see someone. We are actually located 7 miles outside of Cold Spring.

Now for the bad news. Our second air condition (the one in the bedroom) went out. We can't get an appointment until July 29th to get it fixed. On top of that, our new air conditioner (the only one still working) is dripping water inside the roof of the motorhome. Jerry has been busy wiping it up. Since it is Saturday, there is no one to call.

Now, about the weather. It has been nothing but high temperatures, high humidity, and thunderstorms off and on since we got here. Right now it is 85 degrees. We can't believe how fast the weather can change from one minute to the next --- and how dark the skies can get when a thunderstorm is coming through.

Here are our pictures from Eagle Park. By the way, there was an eagle high up in one of the trees with her young ones.

The park has numerous species of plants and flowers that are all named on cards attached to the plant or flower area like the one above.

Tried to capture the dark skies as they moved in the other night. You can still see the blue skies in the distance.

Just to remind you, we are not posting pictures of family members though we are spending time with them. We save that for Facebook.

Continue to live the life you love.

Minot, North Dakota

It took only one day to get to Mandan, North Dakota. Spent four days there 
and attended Kyle and Trisha's wedding.  

 Trisha & Kyle
Yes, you are seeing this right. It was a fun wedding.

After the wedding, we drove to Minot, ND where we expected to spend a couple of days with my (Mary) brother and sister-in-law. That was nearly two weeks ago and we are still there. 

Here we are in the driveway of Ron and Pinky's place in Minot. 
They have full hook-up for us, which makes it hard to move on.

We have had a great time catching up with them. Each evening, we ate with them with Jerry cooking every other night, and they making the dinner on the opposite nights.

 Over Memorial Day weekend, we joined their family at Craig 
and Joanne's cottage at the lake. Here is Jay doing the grilling. 

Tried to get to the Roosevelt Park Zoo here in Minot nearly every day, 
but it was either too cold or rainy. We finally made it yesterday.

Here are some of the pictures we took while at the zoo. Unfortunately, 
I inadvertently messed up the settings on my camera.

Penquins in Minot

Leaving on Monday to continue our trip on to Cold Spring. 
Will stop somewhere along the way and arrive on Tuesday.

Continue to live the life you love!
