"If you build it, they will come". We drove from our campground in Wisconsin to the Field of Dreams movie site in Dyersville, Iowa. It is literally a baseball field in the middle of a cornfield. The movie was made in the 1980's and the movie site is still attracting people. There were groups of kids, and adults, with their balls and gloves, standing in the outfield, and running the bases. We walked around the bases and just enjoyed being there. If you haven't seen the movie, rent it. It's a good one.

On the way back to the campground we stopped at the Grotto in Dickeyville, Wisconsin to check it out. A Catholic priest in the 1920's created it with materials from all over the world.
