Online Friends

Nancy S., Lori H., and Henrietta
Gavins Point Dam
Yankton, SD
May 2012
Lori (Dakota Quilter) and I have been online friends for a couple of years, and recently, Marilyn and I had the opportunity to meet and visit with Lori and her long-time friend Henrietta.

Although I didn't know it at the time, Julia who I met by chance in Lincoln, NE is also a friend of Lori's. Oh yes, it is a small world.

Lori volunteers at the Gavins Point Dam, and we were privileged to have a private tour with Lori as our guide.

Some of the original tools were on display.
Lori said it is a tradition to have a yellow bicycle in a dam.
Lori explains the generators to Marilyn and Henrietta. 
Original control panels for the generators.

Lori also recommended some quilt shops in Sioux City, IA and Mankato, MN. The shops were wonderful. Thanks, Lori.


  1. So cool to get a behind the scenes tour of the dam. I wonder how a yellow bicycle became a tradition?

  2. Neat! My FIL would be very jealous. He loves dams!

  3. I love meeting velveteen friends. it's so much fun. The dam tour looks amazing and I loved the yellow bike. g

  4. Im so curious about the yellow bicycle tradition.......tell us more?

  5. Wonderful tour of the dam ... did ha ask Lori about her portable mail box? Great photo of you all!! Enjoy!

  6. I knew there was a reason I don't like having my picture taken, I look like my grandmother.
    It was a fun tour wasn't it?
