Bob and I decided on the spur of the moment Saturday to go on a drive to view colored leafs; the area (Red Wing) we chose was at their peak. We knew we were going to have to stay over night somewhere. We don't drive after dark. Well it was just turning dark when we arrived where we planned to stay. We checked at three different motels and no vacancy. I asked what was happening. The answer: People from out of the area viewing colored leafs. So I asked if they could call the next city down the road for us. They did and we were able to reserve one of the two rooms left there. The next city was about 30 miles away. We grabbed a sandwich ,bananas, and some donuts at a Casey's and headed for our room. Bob had to drive in the dark, but he said it wasn't as bad as before he had his cataract surgery. I was glad to hear that, but I still was a little afraid. Anyway we had a good time.
