Robert is a history buff and decided we would travel to see the Museum of Strange History in Gargoyle, Illinois. I wasn't really into it but to make him happy, I told him we would go.
The day we left for the trip was beautiful. The sky was bright blue and the sun was out. This was a good thing because we had experienced a rough winter.
The drive would take us two days and we would stay in a motel on the way. We drove through some beautiful areas and I enjoyed seeing the gorgeous landscape.
We stopped in Ottawa and got us a motel. We had a very nice dinner at Pirate Jacks. I made several new friends.
The next afternoon, we reached Gargoyle and Robert was excited to go to the museum. We got us another motel, changed our clothes and left for the museum.
It was closed!
I certainly enjoyed the trip but I can't say the same for Robert.
