... with stories of the family history.
Our drive to Galena through the corn fields has many more hills than I expected. We went by the farm and home where Linda grew up. It is sad to see that time and a new owner have not kept the place up. Time marches on.

Our accommodation for the night was another historic B&B with a chatty owner, but on a much grander scale. This one had about 12 rooms, including one in the tower accessed by a narrow spiral staircase, which we got upgraded too.
