A Picture, A Shopping Trip, The Corner Grill

Davenport, IA

74 deg scattered clouds, no wind.

Forecast = Mostly sunny with a 20 percent chance of showers and thunderstorms. High around 90. South wind 10 to 15 mph. Heat index readings to 100.

As I was saying yesterday there are pretty nice sites here at the West Lake Park. As you can see, I've got quite a bit of shade and the site is of reasonable size. Jim did take more pictures of the park but my Internet connection is so slow here, it takes forever to download them.
Jim and Linda didn't do much yesterday. They did go out to get some milk and then stopped by an RV dealer just down the road from the park. Jim was looking for a few gadgets to put inside of me like a plastic bag holder/dispenser and a knife rack, but they didn't have either one so I guess he'll have to order them from a Camping World or something.

When Jim was checking in at the CG the other day, he was talking to the lady in the office and found out that there was a place to eat in a little town called Blue Grass, which is only about 4 or 5 miles West of here. So last night, he and Linda decided to try it out. It's called The Corner Grill, and is located (where else), right on the corner at the center of this very small town.

The food was very good, but nothing spectacular. The gal that waited on Jim and Linda was new, so she was having trouble keeping up with her tables. There is a bar, so you can get drinks if you want, and being a grill, the menu is limited but you can get everything from sandwiches to burgers to pizza and even a few dinner selections. Over all Jim and Linda both said that it was a good place to eat and would go back again if in the area.

Today we'll be heading back to Rantoul. As of right now, the plan is to stay there until some time in September. Both Jim and Linda have lots to do so I don't think they'll be bored. There's  still some of their "stuff" in the storage area of the bath house to deal with, doctors to see and also they're hoping that some people called the "Illinois Bunch" will be able to come to the park while we're there. They are also hoping to see some other RVers and friends during our stay.

Did you know that already this year in Iowa, over 4000 head of cattle have died because of the severe heat?
