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.
Galena is the neatest town ever. This the home of Ulysses S. Grant, general for the Union army in the civil war. The town and area remind you of the Gettysburg area in PA. The main ...

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.
