This morning I am in Springfield, Illinois. I have been touring some of the Lincoln sites for the last two days, and loving it! I did throw in a Frank Lloyd Wright house too, for good measure – it was really cool! I am so enjoying this!
The last couple days have been hot, hot, hot – temps at 90 with high humidity, but it’s been ok. It did mean I set up the tent because the car would have been too hot! I have been serenaded with a cacophony of cicadas, and the birds start up about 5 am. My earplugs come in handy!
Yesterday I visited Lincoln’s tomb, which is one place I didn’t get to on my only other trip to Springfield. It was humbling to stand where Lincoln is buried (safe from the graverobbers now…). Of course, I had to rub his nose for good luck! I made a wish, but I can’t tell you, or then it won’t come true!
I’m off to see some more sights – just wanted to update everybody on my progress!
