Today in Central Illinois temperatures got into the 60's. Can't stay home when it is that nice. We drove over to LeRoy, IL to visit the Moraine View State Park that is still closed courtesy of our former Governor Blagojevich. Most of the area is barricaded. The lake is still open for fishing and there were lots of ice fishermen/fisherwomen on the ice. (Although, the ice looked very watery on top, it must still be deep enough to fish on) Anyway, it was so lovely to walk around the area. We may not be able to camp yet, but it was a great day for a walk. We walked around a few barricades and enjoyed the park. We stayed on the roads and just walked around. Makes me wish it would stay like this so we could start camping. Hopefully, the new Governor will get our state parks opened back up soon. What a waste of some great areas. It was just a great day to be outside. Spring may be here before we know it. Deena Me '61, DH '65, DS '95 Snoopy '93, Daisy Mae ' 06 "Living it and Loving it."
