Traveled all of 28 miles from St. Louis to St. Charles MO. It took Clark and the Corps 2 days to move their three boats the same distance against the Missouri River current. They would not have liked the river today because it was above flood stage by about 3 feet and the current was ripping.
I spent the day in St. Charles ...
... lunch, and we go on the "fun bus" which goes round the huge city area, and the trolley bus driver gave a funny running commentary.
... feels like -11 so I had 4 layers on both top and bottom so sweltered through breakfast, Rodd on the other hand was wearing a T-Shirt so was perfectly comfortable in the breakfast room!
So tummies full back to the room to gather cameras and Rodd added some layers and we head out to see the Arch. Now you see how close it is to our hotel so it should be fairly easy to walk to however ...
... oh joy. I noticed the only other patron munching on
something. I went to the bar to check it
out and found bowls of BBQ potato chips on the bar, and so brought one to our
table. They were efficiently consumed to wash down and
erase the taste of the beer. An
interesting sign behind the bar read; BRAIN SANDWICHES TUESDAY SPECIAL. Sadly, it was a Monday. About 50 chandeliers hung from the ceiling
and it forced me to ask about them.
We made it to St. Louis around 11:30pm tonight. We're here. We're safe. We're all ready to go to bed.
We don't do things slow on a Hawkins Vacation. Tomorrow we're at it again - visiting the Gateway Arch to get a good view of St. Louis from 600 feet up.
