The Most Beautiful Sunset
and a few other “surprises” on our last day in South Dakota.
Ernie awakened to a very wet pillow this morning after it rained all night. It seems our beloved old camper now has a leak…(Surprise! ) Ernie patched up the leaky place with sealant, and we set off to visit his high school guidance counselor and dear friend who first encouraged him to go into the theater. So much love there. We then drove to see the Black Hills Playhouse where Ernie spent 2 summers acting almost 40 years ago. Their season had ended and there was nobody there, but he told us wonderful stories about his adventures at the playhouse while our dogs ran and played, and Skylar rolled in a new doggie perfume left by the bison who roam the area, when nobody was looking. (Surprise! ) After rinsing her in the creek, we went to see the Crazy Horse monument still in progress and drove the wildlife loop seeing deer, prairie dogs, wild turkeys, wild burros, and a huge bison herd. As the day came to an end we were completely awestruck with the most beautiful sunset we have ever seen. It spanned the entire sky. (SURPRISE! )
And yes, Skylar got a full bath in our camper’s tiny shower tonight (thank you Tatiana).
