      Our hotel for the night was a Quality Inn that is adequate but doesn't have a gym. (steak for dinner and no gym, I am in the dog house!)

      Today was a day of R&R. Slept a bit later and reorganized our luggage for tomorrow's departure. Walked downtown for lunch and viewed the bronze Presidential statues that adorn each street corner. Returned to the hotel via a very large municipal park designed for foot and bicycle traffic.
