Walkin'

It was love at first sight.
Of course, after a 47-mile day on a bicycle that included a breakfast of Hostess Cupcakes, high temperatures, headwinds and a flat tire– any air-conditioned room with a shower is an oasis.
But the Lodge in Pere Marquette State Park was so much more, and I’ll tell you about it shortly, but first some history– as provided by a pamphlet provided by the Illinois Department of Natural Resources.

Food For Thought

Those first days and weeks of school each year send me tumbling into the past. I dream of new–stiff, brown leather shoes, new crayons with none of the points yet broken, that Big Chief tablet of lined paper with its red cover, new teachers, old friends, new names to learn, trying to remember which desk in the new classroom belongs to me. It’s both daunting and exciting.
