I’m always on the lookout for interesting things to see along the way. I saw a sign that said biggest Sandhill Crane in the world. I just happened to see it as we were passing the exit. (Click on the pictures to enlarge them.)
We noticed something else odd that we’ve never seen. All along I-94 we saw hundreds of bales of hay (or something) in the fields, but we also saw many bales lying on the highway side of the fence. We’re not sure why they were lying outside the fence. Any farmers out there with an answer?
We love the fields of Sunflowers. It's a real pretty yellow and no matter where the sun is, that's where they pointing.
The closer we got to Fargo the more the clouds were building up. We knew there were going to be storms later in the evening. I took a picture of the clouds this time because they were pink. I even asked Jim if he thought they were pink, just in case I was seeing things.
We arrived at Governors RV Park in Casselton, about 20 miles west of Fargo, and sure enough after we got set up we got a storm. It passed by north of us, but we heard lots of thunder and saw lightning. It also created a rainbow.
Today we took a drive to downtown Casselton, which is about a mile down the road. It’s a bedroom community with lots of neighborhoods and a tiny, two-block long downtown area with a few stores and a couple of bars. We did find a good local pizza place for lunch. We also went to West Fargo to Walmart. We just went shopping a couple of days ago, but it seems we always think of something we forgot to get, or suddenly run out of something we need. On the way back home Jim spotted the familiar blue roof of a Culver’s, our favorite fast food restaurant. We’ll be going back there tomorrow for lunch! :)
I did a lot of cleaning today and Jim did the laundry, so it was mostly a day of chores.
See you tomorrow.
