Bremen, IN High 76 Low 53
Not sure where my brain went but it wasn’t working when I plotted our path through the Chicago area. I decided that we would exit I-80 just beyond Joliet and take US 30 over to Plymouth and then US 6 to Pla-Mor Campground in Bremen.
There must have been 200 lights along US 30 and we had to stop probably 180 times. We also traveled through some poorer sections of the city and the roads were very narrow and rough. Not a good decision on my part but we still pulled in next to Jan and Bill about 3:00. We are now on Eastern Time so it’s hard for me to keep track of what time it is.
I had thought we were going out to dinner after we got set up and Jim had his nap but Jan had thrown a roast in the crock pot. She also had fresh baked bread, potatoes, and veggies. Then a carrot cake for dessert. What a way to end our day. Great food and wonderful friends.
Actually got to sleep because there were no storms to upset the girls. However, about 8:00 this morning the rain started and it seemed like it was never going to quit. They issued a sever weather alert for our area and the weather lady said the more sunshine we saw the worse the weather would be when the second cold front moved through. So I prayed for rain. And the Lord definitely answered that prayer.
Jim got his hair cut today so I don’t have to worry about getting him any dog tags.
Jan and I discussed where we were going to dinner and came up with several choices. The Flippin’ Cow, the Lux Café, a couple of places right in Bremen and the South Side Soda Shop which was featured on Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives. We decided to give the Soda Shop our business.
I had read good reviews on Yelp for the Philly Steak Sandwich and that is what we all ordered. Jan and I got the spiral fresh cut fries and Jim also got a root beer float. The fries and the float were really good but the sandwich was nothing to write home about.
It was pouring rain when we went in and still raining when we came out. Jan offered to drive home and we hadn’t got 100 feet when the rain stopped and the sun came out. Way to go Jan.
Stay tuned for further adventures tomorrow.
