It has been a glorious morning in Tennessee, Kentucky and southern Illinois.
Blue sky and sunshine are the order of the day. It’s perfect weather for travelling.
We are on our way north to meet with a friend from Missouri who is driving to a small town in Illinois to meet us there. I’m looking forward to seeing her again: it has been about five years since I last saw her.
There is a striking change in the landscape from Tennessee and Kentucky to Illinois.
Tennessee and Kentucky are very green and have pretty rolling hills that make lovely scenery.
Illinois is flat. Flat flat flat. Welcome to the prairies.
Oh! There are oil wells in Illinois!
I had no idea. There are lots of them, though.
There you go: I learned something new today.
