Our trusty Choice book has this as a Comfort inn. Not to sure what to think when they change brands - last time that happened was in Washington DC and was not the best. This looks to be different. Not much to choose from in this small town. Super 8 next door which we have avoided. This room has 2 queen beds, fridge, microwave and the usual Choice pillows - some soft and some a bit firmer. These pillows are the normal size. We have been having small square ones lately. Nice to have two chairs and a table to use but back to the light on one side only beside the bed. Breakfast was very slim pickings. Only meat patties (no hot egg option), cold hard boiled eggs, waffles, very sweet cereal, bagels, pastries and bread for toast. Only tired small red apples for fruit. No staff in the breakfast area to clean tables or top up the food. Bed room needs some maintenance. Bath plug does not seal but the drain does not drain quickly either. if having a shower, feet are in deep water, having a bath requires the water to run all the time. Towel rail coming off the wall. Not the cheapest night's stay either.

... the mighty Mississippi River.
Along the way we made a detour at Olmsted to see where they are building a new lock which will replace locks 52 (at Paducah) and 53 at Olmsted. It is a massive project which will enable the Ohio to be navigable all year round even in the dry summer.
At Cairo, we crossed the Mississippi into Missouri. A very utilitarian bridge quite narrow with a sharp bend at the end as the road stays on the top of the levee bank. Luckily it is ...
Arrived early and got our pick of sites. We found one right on the lake. At dusk, a family of skunks would come out to enjoy the fallen crab apples on the tree in our site. The sunsets were gorgeous! We met Puff the Purple Dragon on the beach! Loved the water tower.
... of Popeye". A pleasant place with an active downtown, we ended up staying in a 10x15 bunkhouse for cyclist at the Fraternal Order of the Eagles. Nice since it rained. Yesterday began with a 20 mile section along a Mississippi R. levee before getting overtaken by a thunderstorm. It was warm enough to just ride through it. Tonight we are at Cave in Rock State Park on the Ohio Rivet, established because this riverside cave was popular with ...
