Day 22-Nashville, Tennessee to Fox Ridge, Illinois Today we left the Nashville area and headed up into eastern Illinois.

Apr 17, 2010 - Charleston IL

Left Grafton about noon, got to Eleanor's about 6. She looks great! Kim and Lee took us to dinner at the Country Club. Then they took us to see the house they are fixing up. I just love it! Lots of work to do but when they are finished it will be beautiful. Didn't think I'd be able to sleep but went to bed earlier then usual. Can't wait for morning to come and to be on our way!
