The second half of our trip revealed that I booked too much time on the first half. I did. I could see this fact as I attempted to book the second half. Rather than starting over, canceling, planning, and booking again, I went forward.
Steve wanted to visit Iowa for the opportunity to tour Winnebago Industries in Forest City, Iowa, an activity that didn’t interest me very much, even less so when I had few days to book parks and many miles to cover to get us back to our winter campground. Steve wouldn’t budge, so I booked five days in Clear Lake, Iowa, not far from Forest City.
Only five days. We really enjoyed our stay in Clear Lake, Iowa, all five days. It was difficult to squeeze in the tour, but we did. We dined at The Landing Patio Bar and Grill at South Shore Inn located only five minutes from our campsite. Our table was situated under a canopy, so we were sheltered from the sun yet seated in the open air. The view was spectacular and the gentle breeze just cool enough to make the atmosphere pleasant.
The Landing was large and very crowded. I prefer not to invade the privacy of others by including them in photos. I chose instead to snap this isolated part of the restaurant that was cordoned off.
