Road Trip

Yesterday I got to do one of my favorite things in the whole wide world…go on an impromptu, unplanned road trip!  My husband needed something picked up in a town about an hour-and-a-half away, so away I went!  Camera in tow, of course.

As I motored along on Highway 20, the Basilica beckoned from above the rooftops of Dyersville.  Stay tuned for more photos of that magnificent building, inside and out.

Just the kind of trip I like.

Great pictures.

Windows down yesterday! I was very happy to be inside in the AC. I love that truck converted to lawn ornament.

We must be kindred spirits. You just described what I would call a perfect day. Capturing that old truck would have put me over the moon.
