Our original plan was to take our time getting to Bellevue since we were familiar with this area. Then, we were going to spend all day tomorrow looking around Bellevue and then head back to West Virginia. Then our plans changed.
I found out they were having special music at our church next Sunday and I would not be needed. We suddenly had another week free.
So, we decided to get back on the interstate and high-tail it to Bellevue and look around this afternoon. Then, tomorrow, we would make a slight detour to Wisconsin and visit with Beth’s family for a few days. It only added about 200 miles to the trip, but saved us a 1,300-mile round trip Beth was planning in 2 weeks.
Because of security reasons, outdoor photography is not allowed on base.
However, I did take some photos off-base around our old neighborhood.
After a nice dinner, we turned in for the night. Since we saw everything today, we are a day ahead again.
Tomorrow, we have about 500 miles to go to Beth’s home in Wisconsin. It’s a road we’ve traveled many times.
Hope to see you tomorrow.
