Marti Drives a Duck.

We were able to juggle our schedules to actually find the same week free for both of us.  After wrestling (with ideas, not each other), we settled on a quick, week long visit to Branson, Missouri.

Branson is becoming the Show Capital of the country, with about 120 different shows playing most times of the year.  Family shows, shows you'd be happy to take your grandmother to, unlike Vegas, where you need to hide your eyes most of the time.



We hooked up the toad, made a quick food store stop and headed out.  Branson is a two day drive from our house, so once again, many photos were snapped through the windshield.




We made a few stops, mostly at the insistence of Zoe, she hasn't mastered using the bathroom in the motorhome, yet.  Something about not having  thumbs and being defeated by doorknobs.


We stayed at the America's Best Campground and booked a bunch of shows, many just $25 or $30 per person.  Irish Tenors, Broadway dancing, Peter Pan, Noah's Ark, with real animals and Marti's favorite guy (besides me)...


...the Russian comedian, Yakov Smirnoff. 

We needed a break from all the tapping, singing and spotlights, so we decided to do something that would enable us to see some of the area besides the inside of the theaters.  What better way to enjoy the sunshine and fresh air than on a Duck!


No!  Not that kind of Duck, THIS kind of Duck!




We wandered all around the Branson area, seeing the sights.




We finally ended up taking the plunge right into Table Rock Lake!




That's where the Captain gave up the wheel to Marti and she drove the Duck all around the lake.  She drove it like a pro, must come from being married to a Coastie!




We may not be full timers yet, but we pack alot of fun into short periods of time. :c)

As always, thanks for visiting.  Leave a comment!
