MILES TRAVELED TODAY: 0 KM
Crew change today so we were up and at it, changing linens and doing laundry. Looking out the windows, we found a flock of swallows swooping around the Quest. Soon they were perched on the railings, cocking their little heads and checking us out through the window. Cute little fellas. I think they were eating all the insects. At least I hope they were!
Chores done, the three of us took of to explore the area. We found a little orchard stand where we stocked up on apples then walked through the Sunday morning flea market. We found breakfast at the historic Ruebel Hotel and Restaurant which first opened in 1879. It experienced a fire in 1912 but came back to life after being. rebuilt in 1997
Once back on the Quest, I made Debbie figure out the external hard drive “thingy” before I would let her go home. We had started this process when she first came on board but got frustrated and just put it aside. Of course, she got it all working quickly and hopefully I can remember how to use it.
Kirt and KelLe arrived without a hitch and turned their rental car over to Debbie. She drove it back to the St. Louis Airport where she caught her flight to Boise where she would be forced to re-enter into the mundane “real world”.
The four of us paid a visit to the Grafton Winery Restaurant Tasting Room where we sampled their wares and bought what we liked. A trio was making some beautiful music and we plopped down to enjoy their melodies and one of our bottles of wine. We had it all; live music, football on the big screen and a big paddle boat cruising by in the river. Another great day!
