In the summer of 2010 we took a 20 day trip across the United States. Kay at Georgia Girl with an English Heart recently brought our visit to the Field of Dreams to my mind. It was definitely a highlight of our trip. I love the fact that it is low key, non-commercial, and EXACTLY
as you remember it from the movie.
Here's what I wrote that night:
"It was a 3 hour ride to Dyersville...in 50 mile an hour winds. Then another 3 hours to Altoona, with no break in the wind. 353 miles of wind...We're still trying to pry K's fingers from the wheel. (Not to mention we were on tornado patrol as we were driving..just in case.) Endless fields of corn and soybeans, with an occasional cluster of oddly huge houses, a golf course, or a church.
We are now settled in to Altoona, Adventureland, where we will stay for 5 nights for the Outdoor Archery Nationals in Des Moines (Go N!)
Time to get to sleep, we're expecting C's CVS to pay us a visit tonight.
Good Night to All!"
If you get a chance, visit Kay's post on movies...and see how many you have seen!
