Yesterday was just glorious!
My MIL wanted to take me out to lunch for my birthday.
My favorite thing this time of year, is to
drive up the river road, along the Mississippi
My SIL was nice to pick her and my other
SIL up to meet us then go for our drive
The first stop was in Alton for lunch
Alton is a wonderful old river town
historical, and I love the architecture
the first casino river boat I was ever on, many years ago!
the sun was out and the temps in the 70's
Mr. looking a bit goofy
we got there early, waiting for everyone and having some ice tea
the collection of quilts for sale were incredible!
I have never seen such a variety.
The wall behind us was filled to.
Now for the beauty
we headed north
first stop was in Elsah IL
it is so picturesque
like a movie set.
Then on to
Grafton IL. A little tourist place.
Great places to eat fish, shop or
sit at one of the wineries
Grafton has some great Bed and Breakfast
high on the bluffs
the traffic was backed to get into town
Then on to Pere Marquette State Park
where my inlaws had their honeymoon.
then back to where we started
the sail boats were even out
How was your Sunday?
Back to work on Tuesday
vacation is drawing to a close.....
