Today started out to be another slow, hanging-around day. We worked a little on polishing the motor home, including getting the front windshield cleaned. I put away the bird feeders, since we've had no birds come to the feeders here. We visited with some of our neighbors, a couple who've recently sold their house in Oklahoma and become fulltimers.
Around noon, I asked Jim if he wanted to take a drive to Deadwood. He said sure, so off we went. It's about an hour's drive from here, and it is a beautiful trip. We were hungry by the time we got there, so we had lunch in the first place we came to. Of course, it's also a casino, so we played slots for a little while. I won $15 and Jim lost $10.
After that we just walked around and looked at the town. It reminded us both of a cross between Cripple Creek and Central City. I liked some of the architecture:
Here's a street view:
It was pretty crowded around town, and we didn't stick around to search out a lot of the historical nuggets; things like John Wayne's truck and Kevin Costner's memorabilia. If we're ever back in this area when it's not high tourist season, those would be things we might look for.
We headed back towards Custer, and found that it had rained while we were gone.
The weather has been cool today, very nice! While we were out this afternoon, there was quite a change in our campground. Several rigs had pulled out earlier today, and those spots plus more filled up. It will be fun to get to know the new neighbors!
