Friday 11-1-19 River Falls & Prescott

We got a good night’s rest and we’re up fairly early. Cathy got breakfast and got David dressed. I got him in his chair.

At 10:30 AM I headed to River Falls, WI to see my oldest friend Gary. We met in the second grade and went through Boy Scouts together, with a lot of camping near his home in the Missouri River Bottoms. We went to school in Switzerland together our Junior Year of college. Gary’s wife Inez made us great Taco Soup and sent a bowl for David with me. He really enjoyed it.

The drive back to Hastings was enjoyable

Stopped in Prescott

They have an interesting draw bridge

When I got back to Nichol’s Inn, I went to Walmart to pick up some folding camp chairs to supplement the one chair in the room. I got a Critter Chair for Alessandra.

My sister Jeanne from New Jersey checked in and went to Walmart. My son Jay and family from Cold Spring and daughter Kathryn and family from Ft Irwin, CA also got here.

We went to the Spiral Brewery in Historic Downtown Hastings.

They don’t have food, but encourage bringing it in from nearby restaurants. Cathy and David had Mexican. I and several others got food at the Busted Nut across the street. I had a Busted Nut burger with infused bacon, lots of bacon and peanut butter

The brewery is named after the old Spiral Bridge

My granddaughters enjoyed playing together

Went back to Nichol’s Inn and spent some time in pool area. Jay and I ended up in the Lobby until 12:30 AM.
