Unfortunately I have no photos of the Jolly Green Giant, in fact, I only saw a very brief glimpse of him as we were leaving Blue Earth.  Billy did not like the set ups at the fairgrounds and did not want to stay.  I reluctantly gave in.  Needless to say I was very disappointed.  The fairgrounds were beautiful, well kept, and lots of great walking areas.  I'm betting the town was just as nice.....it was obvious how much pride they take in there public places.  The sites at the fairgrounds are not marked at all.....electric is here there and everywhere.  Water and sewer are only available in about 3 spots and they are not suitable for big rigs.  I did not see a dump station, but there is supposed to be one.  I would have loved to have stayed here for a couple of days and explored, but Billy was not going to be happy.....so on we went.
We ended up going down the road and found an overpriced KOA.  The set up was nice....fairly wide spacing....easy pull throughs.  It is the price that makes me unhappy....$41.00 bucks for a very average, close to the interstate rv park.  Did I mention the fairgrounds were free for the first two nights!  Enough said!

We spent the last two nights in Portage WI in a nice little Passport America park called Big Sky.  Great park, although I'm betting it gets pretty busy and noisy in the summer months.  Our stay was quiet and peaceful.......
And beautiful....it seems this old earth is just exploding with spring these days
I don't believe I have ever seen so many colorful birds.....
Would you believe a woodpecker did all this?  Amazing!
I'm not sure what this guy was chattering about, but he didn't seem to be to happy with my being in "his" woods........LOL!

Today finds us in another great campground in Rockford IL.......more photos next post!
