Mr. B came today. On our way to the airport (we had the day to explore) the girls and I tried to visit Storybook Island Park (closed ‘til the weekend) and the South Dakota Maze (ditto). Instead we enjoyed fabulous views at Dinosaur Park, then wandered the streets of downtown Rapid City, which is remaking itself as the City of Presidents with bronze statues of American presidents on nearly every corner, 31 so far with several more per year in the works ‘til it’s complete.
We were all really happy to see Mr. B. I think he was happy to be on the ground after a VERY long day (three flights) of travel.
It’s raining tonight. It’s been raining off and on, mostly on, since an hour before Mr. B landed.
