This morning we got moving like a herd of turtles, but it was nice to be lazy Right now we're crossing the dam at Lake Ogalalla, which is immense. The wind came up during the night and the whitecaps on the water are beautiful from our nice, dry van—I wouldn't care to be out there in a boat.

We stopped on the south end of the dam where water is cascading, looking for all the world like a sideways waterfall Sam is out taking photos.

We had run out of books to read because I forgot to pack the charger for the Kindle, so we stopped at a tiny bookstore in Ogalalla this morning and picked up several paperbacks to feed our book adiction.

Farther on, Sam spotted three prong-horn antelope in a plowed field and got photos of them. They did not seem to be at all alarmed: just stood and looked at us while we looked at them.

We just passed a cattle feeding lot: it's enough to make you swear off beef forever, especially when Sam stops and opens the window to get pictures! The stench is almost unbelievable.

At lunchtime, we found ourselves in Sidney, Nebraska, and decided to wander through the streets to find a shady place to park and make lunch What we found was a lovely little park with big shade trees and a Memorial Garden The land was apparently donated to the city and the park is maintained by volunteers—reminds me of Master Gardener projects We had lunch: Sam got both still photos and video footage. Good stop.
