(Galena, IL) Hi 78 Lo 58 – A lot warmer today. There were a few more shops in downtown Galena that we wanted to see, so since it's only about four miles away we decided to spend some more time there this morning. There was an antique car group passing through town on the way to a car show. We spoke to one of the car owners and he said that, just like RV’ers they go around to different areas all summer just to drive their cars. Here’s a few of their cars.
We walked the streets for an hour or so and then came back to the park. We've enjoyed our stay here, it's a really nice place. It’s quiet, and has many amenities. There’s a miniature golf course, pool, and play area. We see kids but don’t hear them. The bath house is clean. There's a small laundry room - only two washers and two dryers - but it's one of the cheapest we've seen, only one dollar per load.
The office building and the pool.
The miniature golf course.
The park has several loops.
This is a huge tent area
One of the more wooded loops.
Three of the five cabins available for rent.
Our site is across the street from the bath house and laundry room.
There’s plenty of trees around but they’re very tall and not too confining... just the way we like it!
We spent the evening with Terri and Mike. They recently sold their house and are now full timers. They're on their way to South Dakota from Virginia and are staying in an RV park about an hour away. They were nice enough to drive here to Galena to join us for dinner. We last saw them back in May when we were at the KOA in Richmond, VA. They were living in the Excel fifth wheel at the time and anxiously trying to sell their house. It was so great to see them again and, now that they're on the road I'm sure we'll be meeting up again in the future.
Thank you Terri and Mike for the visit.
Tomorrow it's off to Joliet, IL for the weekend. We'll have a short visit with our son Rick and his lovely wife Laura, and our grandkids before we head to the Elkhart, IN area next week.
