May 12 – Casey, IL

An easy, uneventful day on our travels from Nashville to Casey, IL.

As an edit to our homepage text, the island on which the Acadia National Park is spelled Mount Desert. Thank you cousin Betty, a permanent Maine resident starting in 2011.

When we walked the dogs this morning at the Nashville KOA, I noticed a collection of locust on some of the trees. I took some photos of the various stages of their metamorphosis.

We arrived at the Casey, IL KOA with a rainstorm on the horizon. We were welcomed with a nice rainbow near the horizon. See photo.

We are off to Volo, IL tomorrow. The Fish Lake Beach Campground is our base while we visit our folks. It would not be a normal camping experience at Volo without heavy rain so we asked for the campsite on the high ground.

Have a great day.
