July 21, 2013 - Truman Lake, MO

After my walk this morning, I did some laundry and packed up again to head to my sister, Rene and her husband Mike's home near Truman Lake, about an hour's drive from Rita's home, where I will spend the next 3 days of my trip.  The drive took me almost straight east, along some pretty remote back roads - beautiful!  It has been 6 years since I've been here and they have made a lot of changes to the place, added on a workshop, a new driveway, and made it more of a home than a cottage since they are now retired and living here permanently.  The place looks good and the hugs felt good!

After visiting for a while and the air cooled a bit, we headed down to the lake for a boat ride.  This lake is a lot different from Lake of the Ozarks in that you are not allowed to build a home on the shoreline and very few houses are visible from the lake.  It was quiet and peaceful and we saw lots of wildlife; Great Blue Herons, a muskrat or beaver, a few Bald Eagles, and a gorgeous sunset.  What a nice evening!
My little sister, Rene.
