It’s been a week. Had a cold, which in this time of stupid pandemic tricks, is terrifying. But never had a fever, just chills and sweats and general crappiness. So we went to Lake Waconda for my birthday.
For my birthday, we are doing another COVID-19 conscious road trip. We set out mid afternoon and promptly got stopped by a train.
In addition to the beautiful flowers, we had a wonderful day of exploring. We ended up going to see Big Basin, Little Basin, and St. Jacob’s Well. These are waaay off of the beaten path. We took the road less traveled. The big basin… Continue Reading “I Like Big Basin, I Cannot Lie”
