Dungeons and Dragons Park, Illinois

We did try to get your camper friends to go with us on a trip a bit farther away from Gunn Creek Campground, but they didn't I feel understand the love for art and just feeling like a kid. Adults can always be a kid ...you never will lose your kid like self ...if you do things you love. We are not players of Dungeons and Dragons, BUT WE LOVE ART. Art of all sorts, when you are creative you just show your passion... a passion for so so so many things ... art of cars, people, jewelry, camping, whatever ... ART is ART. Never allow any one to tell you that what you are doing is not art.

Franklin County 1910's Garage Museum

This was a not to far location to see from our Gunn Creek Campground, one of the fellow campers was having a birthday so we stopped into Joe's Pizza & Pasta, 117 E. Main St. Benton, IL 62812, Phone: (618) 438-0563. I wish, wish, WISH I had taken a picture or 2 of the pizzas we did have ... each couple got a different pizza and that gave us all a chance to try so many of their amazing PIZZAS. They were DELICIOUS!!! greek, hawaiian, taco, stuffed, veggie, SO MANY OPTIONS, you will love it promise!!!
So some one recommended going to see this museum. It is a FREE museum, however they would appreciate a donation. I believe one of the campers had seen a bit about it in the travel brochure.

Address: 511 N Main St, Benton, IL 62812, Hours: Open ⋅ Closes 6PM, Phone: (618) 438-2121. I love that I got the water tower in this 1st shot, I didn't realize that until I …

Pheasant Hollow Winery, Illinois

I would have put money it that I did in fact take a picture of this very same shot that I also put on my instagram feed? But where is it? Great shot, huh? All the camping friends jumped in vehicles and drove to this winery ...just around the corner from Gunn Creek Campground. Pheasant Hollow Winery, 14931 St. Hwy 37, Whittington, Illinois, 62897 ...so many of those friends bought treats to share ...we did too. Some peanut filled pretzels. This is a quiet getaway. It was fun to just take some time to be quiet, laugh, listen and take it all in. Check it out if you are in the area. Thank you for stopping by today. Hope you are well. Take Care. Be Well & Be Blessed!!! Beth ( ;

Gunn Creek Campground, Illinois

Gunn Creek Campground, Address: Golf Course Dr, Whittington, IL 62897, Phone: (618) 724-2493. We were at this park for 6 days and the weather was always changing ... one day warm, cold, freezing, so much wind we thought we might blow away ... it was wild!! But the hubby who prefer water front sites was so thrilled. We got to see so many amazing sights at this party ... eagles, birds of all sorts, but you know what was funny a camper friend said ... "Did you notice there are no squirrels?" I had not even thought about it... there were NO SQUIRRELS??? what, really? it was true. Lots of birds, tons of birds ... from all size .... SMALL to LARGE ... but no squirrels ... doesn't that seems odd? The sunsets were amazing!! More side trips from this view soon. Enjoy! Thank you for stopping by today. Hope you are well. Take Care. Be Well & Be Blessed!!! Beth ( ;

Axtel Campground, Kentucky, Address: 14500 Falls of Rough Rd, Falls of Rough, KY 40119, Phone: (270) 257-2584, I was trying to recall if we normally go out in the camping world in April? I know the month of February we have never ever been camping??! It is kind of cold then. 
So we were heading to Illinois for a get together with other camping buddies ... stopped at this park ... I believe my hubby had picked 3 camping spot before we got to finally keep this one we did stay in ... they were flooding as you can see. This is dam controlled ... but it does go into their camping spots and that is what happened to our other 1st wishes for camping??! Wild, huh???! You will never guess what the weather was like in the morning?? We woke up to falling snow, the hubby talked to another camper he was talking about snow in the morning, and the hubs looked at the weather report and it said NO SNOW, how do these weather folks get their jobs? One job where you can always be wrong, huh??! LOL!! ... …

For more info. about this museum see here: http://www.corvettemuseum.org/ On the way up to Illinois for a gathering of Casita friends we dropped on by this awesome amazing fun museum. Shawn and I totally agree, orange is the best color to have any vehicle in. Check this beauty out!!! All these corvettes are spoken for, BUT it is so fun to see them in person. I must say I am such a fan of the older models ...they had more style to me. Maybe I just feel like I am an old soul. Have you been there for a visit? Hope you will get a chance one day soon. What color corvette would you have in your garage? Maybe you have one already? Hey There Friends. Hope you are well today. Thanks for stopping by. Be Well & Be Blessed!!! See ya next time. Take Care!
