Gra Nomad Wanderings

"I go to nature to be soothed and healed." (Especially after doing all the eating we've been doing!)

There are many, many statues in Newton, Iowa. This is just one of them.

We went to Prairie City to have tenderloins and treats. We chose Goldie's Diner. It didn't disappoint.

We even got to meet Goldie. What a character. Thanks for the tucker Goldie.

At last I got a ride on a bike... of sorts. This one was built prior to 1920. Yikes! Pretty short cranks. SOLID tyres! Practically unrideable - but I rode it. Thought of Mulga Bill.
Our visit to LIVING HISTORY FARM was well worth it. This house was owned by the Flynn family. We spent the best part of a day there.

A favourite spot was Cardinal Corner where we used to go for dessert. Ice creams were delicious. And huge! Thanks heaps Bryan & Marcia for a great time in Iowa (as usual).
Off to Minnesota tomorrow. About a 6 - 7 hour drive. Think Fay might have to do some driving. Otherwise, how else will I be able to sleep?
