A Beautiful Driving Day

Today we left Greensburg KS heading for Toronto Lake in the eastern part of Kansas.  Unlike the previous days the weather was simply beautiful with clear blue skies and no wind.  The drive was through gentle rolling hills that we stunningly green.  We had never stayed at the Toronto State Lake before but were pleasantly surprised.  The campsites are tucked back into the woods and are very quiet.  Tonight the place is nearly vacant with the nearest neighbors about 300 ft away.  Suspect it is that way except on holidays.  We would highly recommend this campground for those in the area.  The cost was $14 for a water and electric site.  A sewer connection is an additional $3.50.

This afternoon we drive over to a very small town called Virgil where Dean’s Dad and immediate family grew up.  We visited the cemetery and were lucky to connect with a local resident who knew the family from way back.  Tomorrow it is up early to head to Springfield MO.

Miles driven 235.
