Dam West Campground, Carlyle, IL

We were supposed to be in Dover, TN at a rally that we have gone to 4 years in a row. But lots of things have been changed this year. I'm glad we had a few days to get out. 

We were early as usual so we went to lunch at the Fish House while we waited for our spot to open up. 

I was able to book 4 days here and it happened to be the same time that Jack & Patty were going to be here. That worked out great.

We did get a couple of nice bike rides in.

The usual nonsense

I also always manage to eat good, too

Hopefully at least one more trip before it gets too cold.

Zucchini Bread

Master Baker making Zucchini Bread:

Carol came home from the store and said she was going to make some zucchini bread. Sounds good.

Then I am in another room listening to her making it.

The conversations she was having with herself:

I don't have walnuts, I have pecans.
 Can I use a Bundt pan instead of a loaf pan?
 I don't have that much zucchini!

I hear her asking Siri:
 Something about butter instead of vegetable oil
Something about white sugar instead of brown sugar.

I hear:
My baking soda is old

 But she was determined to make it

While in the oven she says:
If they work it's a miracle.

Well, as it turns out it was very good. She must be a master baker. 

It was excellent!

Dam West Campground, Carlyle, IL

We were able to get a few days here.

Dinner out one night at the Wheelhouse

Dinner out at the Fish House, too.

We always get some bike riding in.

Carol found another "As Seen on TV" gadget. Knife with built in cutting board. She said it's great.

I've seen drinking fountains before but never one like this that the Corps just put in. I assume the lowest  one is for dogs.

How many birds have you seen this week?

My Doc always asks if my appetite is OK?
 I guess it is!

Looking forward to the next trip.
