It's probably not too hard to guess where this road leads to.
Yes, it is just a few miles from Branson. BG mentioned after the 4th that it would be a good time for him to take off a few days. I had the laundry all caught up, so I packed the suitcase and we were on our way.
Our son was still on vacation so he joined us for a few days.
The weather was nice and hot, but we had some beautiful skies after a fast moving storm blew in Friday evening just as we were getting ready to leave the condo to go to dinner.
The rain cooled the temps down and the humidity wasn't as high, so we enjoyed a game of miniature golf after dinner that evening. I, of course, came in last...as usual. ☺ The men are such competitors and I don't stand a chance. And I even got a hole-in-one! Brett scored 3 holes-in-one and still lost to the Big Guy. BG never lets us hear the end of it, either! lol
The food was delicious everywhere we ate. I fixed breakfast a few times at the condo and we had snacks, but the main meals are eaten out. That's part of the fun of vacation, right? 'Tis for me.
I wish I'd zoomed in a bit closer on this tree just outside our deck at the condo. We can't figure out what it is. It appears to have large clusters of what looks like nuts of some kind. Anyone know what this is?
Pretty skies were overhead as we traveled home. The weather is very hot right now. Our daughter watered the flowers and kept the cats fed while we were gone. The flowers are still looking good so far. It will be a battle to keep them that way with this relentless heat and humidity.
The Japanese beetles are still around devouring our peaches. And the raccoons are feasting on them as well. The deer may miss out this year. Some years I feel like we plant just to feed the wildlife.
I have picked one ripe tomato. And the cucumbers are full of flowers getting ready to turn into fruit. But the green pepper plants look pitiful. There won't be many of those this year.
Our little vacation was nice but ended all too quickly. The days just rush by and there's so much to see and do that there is never enough time. Now it's back home and back to work.
I want to do some changing up in my house, but first I need to get some of the purging done. There is a long to-do list that I've made and I'll be happy when I can draw a line through those items that are done. What are you up to this summer?
Happy Wednesday to you!
