Day 1

From early morning breakfast to dinner in a mall food court, its been a nearly perfect travel day!  Here are the highlights:

  • Breakfast send-off prepared and served by Lois, Pam, and Deanna.  A prayer by PR started our journey out on the right note.  Then the group picture beneath the cross.
  • Lunch in Chillicothe, MO, at “Washington Street Food & Drink Company.”  (Thanks to a Redeemer member for paying for lunch! That was a nice surprise and appreciated!)
  • We had a bald eagle fly along with us for a while on Highway 36.
  • Spent a little bit of time at the Welcome Center in Hannibal, Missouri.
  • Traveled on Highway 61 South, known as “Avenue of Saints.”
  • Saw a hearse stalled along the road.  That sparked some interesting speculations and conversation.
  • Arrived at Chesterfield, Missouri, Hampton Inn at 5:00.
  • Left at 5:45 for the Chesterfield Mall to eat at the Cheesecake Factory.
  • 6:15 – Plan B — 90 minute wait at Cheesecake Factory.  We headed to the Mall Food Court.
  • Spent an hour or so milling about at the mall.  Some of us rode the Victorian Carousel  – which was well worth the $2 token!
  • Back to the motel a bit after 8:00 to relax and turn in for the night.  Good night!
