It's always a sad day when you have to leave a place you've been at for a few days, and it's made especially sad when the area is so gorgeous and the people are some of the nicest you've met. We said our goodbyes to the Finebergs and thanked them for being so incredibly nice and hospitable. We had a wonderful stay! Thank you so much!
After I thanked Justin for buying me all the worms for fishing, we hit the road and headed off, leaving Colorado behind us and heading into the never-ending driving. We stopped for a lunch bite at Da Kind in Evergreen. Excellent sandwiches and really incredible soups. [ link ] Then, we drove and drove and drove some more. Oh, we also did some driving.
We stopped in Omaha, NE for some grub at California Tacos & More. Apparently, the chef who started the restaurant had no prior experience and just jumped in and started making tacos. They are fantastic, and one taco is big enough to be a meal. California Tacos & More [ link ]. Delish!
We pulled into our hotel (The Ramada Inn) in Kearney, NE and hopped into our rooms. We had poolside rooms for the evening, which proved to be pretty sweet when we wanted access to the pool and raised tiki-bar, but pretty noisy when the tiki-bar patrons got a little... rowdy. But we had to have a least a drink at the tiki bar, and then Dan, Allen and I got locked in the hot tub room with a handful of teenage girls, a dad and his two little girls and a few other little girls of indeterminate origin. It was fun until one of the little girls started crying, but Danny stepped in and kept the girl calm until someone walking by let us out. Then it was time for sleep and getting ready for our day of driving, destination Davenport, IA.
