Very happy with out stay here; a little removed from Hannibal, but it was a better value than anything there; our bed was supremely comfortable and a nice breakfast deal is available

... tracks run parallel between the highway and the river. It made for a very Huck Finn feel. The town is obsessed with Mark Twain, because it was his boyhood town.

... down to the Gulf. They had jetted to New York and rented a RV vehicle for their trip. One of man in the group had just come back from a Paris to Beijing motorcycle ride!
I also climbed up 244 steps to a lighthouse that was dedicated to Mark Twain and when I was about half way up I man told me not to bother there was nothing there to see and he was right!
But I was pleased I could climb the stairs without pausing.
Tomorrow it's off to St Louis to play.
