Maplewood State Park

Monday we left Lake Poinsett and headed north through 23 miles of North Dakota and then turned east into Minnesota. We had about a 4 hour drive to Maplewood State Park. It is another beautiful green area that has about 5 lakes within the park area. We are in Otter Tail county and there are 1,000 lakes in this county alone. We didn't get a spot right on the lake but have a small view of it. Again we are in the midst of a lot of trees and so no satellite for tv watching. We still have internet and phone access though.
Unfortunately we haven't been able to go kayaking as Joe came down with a bout of some type of flu. He was up most of one night with aches and pains, chills and then a lot of sweating. He is still pretty weak as of today, Thursday. We had sun on Monday, rain off and on on Tuesday, sunny Wednesday. Then Wednesday night/Thursday morning came the lightning and thunder and more rain. We read this morning that there were 7 tornadoes in North Dakota and western Minnesota. Not sure how far from here. We haven't had any wind so far which is good. Looking at the forecast it seems there will be rain off and on no matter where we go in the near future.
Just part of traveling though. Joe though he was feeling better Wednesday and we tried for a bike ride but didn't go far as he started feeling bad again. Hopefully he will be back to his old self soon.
