Up to the gently rolling hills of North Dakota

At the Middle Spunk Rest area this sign explained Charles Lindbergh's connection with Minnesota.

Today we were up and dressed and on the road shortly after 9 am.  Breakfast is getting old at the hotels, the same things every day, waffles, cold cereal juice. Not our usual and nearly the same every day. 

Today would be just about four hours of drive from Bloomington, Minnesota to Fargo, North Dakota.  At least the weather has changed for us again.  Last night the weather forecast called for severe rain coming across the state but today it is just lots of high fluffy clouds with plenty of sunshine for a change. Tomorrow the forcast is for high winds, and thunder storms all day.  We'll see what happens.

Not much to see today except lots on gently rollings hills and lots and lots of farm land.  We did pull off at Freeport to take a picture of a nice church and a water tower.

We got into Fargo mid afternoon and after our GPS sent us to two Taco Bells that were either not yet opened or closed down we found one where we could eat lunch.  Back to the hotel and rest for a few hours before going out to find a Pizza Hut for dinner.  Again, our GPS led us first to one that was a delivery only and then to where one used to be, so we ended up at a TGI Fridays.  Judy enjoyed her chicken and pasta meal but my fish and chips were oily and greasy and not good.

We are staying tonight at the Comfort Inn East in Fargo.  A handicapped room with two queen sized beds and a very large bathroom.

In case you were wondering, those gently rolling hills are from the glacial moraine :)
