More Melvern Lake

Today was a very cool day in Kansas.  Melvern Lake is about 10 miles North of I 35 on US 75.  This is the highway that leads into Topeka if you travel it for another 40 miles or so.  And of course you could just stay on the Interstate toll road from Emporia and it would take you to Topeka, but what fun is that?

We are about an hour South of Olathe, Kansas which is the start of the KC city metro area.  We drive over to I 35 from our house on a country road, which skirts all that city, so we miss Olathe.

Today after playing with the grand kids in the morning, we decided to go 20 miles back North up the interstate and do a quick Wal Mart run.  Seems like we never run out of stuff to get at a Wal Mart.  I'm sure they appreciate all our business.  Not!

Any way, we just messed around all day and here it is dark again so another campfire is in the offing. 

It was too cool to do anything with the lake, other than just sit here a look at it most of the day.  But then what else would you have us do?

  1. I know how you feel about going to Walmart. I wish they knew just how many times a month we go. We're not TOO far from you. We're in Illinois. Just to far to meet up, at the moment. Dee
