We checked out of the hotel at 10:15 so we could check back into a different room later. We had to fill up the truck, wash the windshield so we could see where we were going, and get ice for the cooler. Then we were off to hunt for sunflowers.
We drove around and saw millions of sunflowers. At one field we stopped at for photos, a local farmer stopped and asked if he could take a picture of us amongst the sunflowers. We declined but then he and Tommy proceeded to talk for a long time…while I fought off the biting flies. We then drove down to the river and found a place to eat our picnic lunch.
After lunch, we went back to the hotel. Tommy did laundry and then we sat out on our balcony and ate dinner.
