Monday our reunion friends all headed home and we drove from Prairie du Chien to Marion, Iowa to spend a couple of nights at our friends, Butch and Myra’s house. So today I could have titled this blog post Marion in Marion. That night friends got together and there were games, great food and talk.
Yesterday first thing we went for a hike in a nearby park.
We checked out an old bridge over the Cedar River that is now a hike/bike path.
We stopped at a farm stand and gift shop.
August 10 was the anniversary of the devastating derecho that hit this area one year ago. Everywhere we went we could see evidence of the damage it did. So it was strange when a severe thunderstorm came up yesterday afternoon. Some of the corn across the street was blown down and a couple more giant limbs broke out of one of our friend’s trees.
