Sketches for 461

We stayed an extra day in Minot, North Dakota.  We went to a park and had lunch.  Gene read the paper and napped.  I sketched and we walked a little.

 For Scavenger Hunt 461, I know they are going by quickly now.

Number 1, building - a shed at the park with Micron 02 and watercolor
Number 2, skyline - Gene was buying flag holders for his trike, Micron 02

I took a couple of photos on the way here.  The plains look the same.  I tried to take photos of some reeds and water ... didn't find them.  Second time photos disappeared.  I need a new camera again.  Do I really mistreat them?  Not that I know of.

 Just some of the fields on the way.  The sky was beautiful.

I took a photo of the Minot water tank two days ago and it just happens the building on the right is where Gene had to go to buy the flag holders.  Weird....

I liked this tank and the sky.  Pretty.

We had a nice dinner last night at the Badlands Restaurant.  Tonight we will go to the Lonestar which is across the street.  We try not to do chain places but we had good luck at the Lonestar years ago in Phoenix, so will walk over there.  Next night is in Montana, probably.

Thanks, Joan. I should plan ahead a bit more or make notes. I forget many things since I don't post every day. Thanks for hanging in there.
