We got a good start yesterday and drove the 700+km to Fort Wayne, IN. This morning we got away by 8am (early for us) and after leaving IN, crossing into IL and driving a few miles, we saw signs along the road, Burma Shave style, inviting us to see the world's largest golf tee and wind chimes in Casey, IL (pop. 2762 as of the 2010 census).
Well how could we pass an opportunity like this up? When we got into town we saw this billboard:
They are on display at The Yarn Studio, a wonderful-looking place on a prominent corner on the main street of town.
Unfortunately, it hadn`t opened for the day yet.
so we could only look in the windows.
It`s probably a good thing it was closed as Skip would have had a heck of a time getting me out of there to continue our journey.
