there and back again
Got up at 6:30a.m. on the road by 7:30a.m. apparently the camera was a bit blurry eyed that early in the morning. Certainly wasn't the fact that I had no idea what setting to use, nope, nuh uh.
Even while yawning my head off I enjoyed this beautiful sunrise! The picture didn't quite capture the true fuschia colors of the sunrise. I wonder how to teach my camera how to produce the color fuschia. I bet if I spent more time with the instruction manual.
Normally I don't drink caffeine. Any significant quantity leaves me quite paranoid and white knuckle driving is the pits. However, after only about 4 hours of sleep the night before, an hour down the road I was getting blinky. Bottle of Dr. Pepper sipped on judiciously throughout the day kept me wide eyed and bushy tailed.
Little pond at the Devil's Lake rest area (our 2nd potty break). You might remember Devil's Lake, home of the infamous Jesus Camp.
Fall on the North Dakota prairie
Got to Minot by about 12:45p.m. had a delightful chinese lunch at the food court in the mall, picked up sundries with Mom at Target and then home again by 7:30p.m.
It was wonderful to see Mama & Papa Ewok again and I was chuffed that the pain behind her knee is gone.
