We got up bright and early Thursday morning, ate breakfast at Waffle House (ummmm....Waaffffflllleeee Hooouuuusssee), then hit the road.
On our way through St. Louis, Danny pulled off the interstate (suddenly) to check out some towers he sees every time he makes the trip through town, but has never stopped before.
They were pretty cool...but the boys kept getting after me when I'd have them stop in the middle of the road so I could take a picture. The neighborhood was deserted, buildings and houses boarded up...there was no traffic. Geesh! :-)
There goes the Arch. I love St. Louis!!!!!
Rest area stop.
I was acting like I was a spy, or a member of an undercover stakeout. You should see all the pics I have of the guys walking back to the car. :-)
Yep...he's skipping. And, I believe he was singing "We're on vacation. We're on vacation." I could completely relate!!!!!
This is what happens when Mot takes my camera away. Closeup shots of my nose! :-)
We arrived in Lexington later that evening.
When you show up to a hotel lobby, and there's a lady serving free drinks of bourbon and Ale8...then you know you're going to have a good trip!
We moved our luggage to the rooms, then walked around the grounds to check the place out. Our hotel for the next two nights was the Griffin Gate Marriott Resort.
On one side of the property is a mansion turned restaurant...aptly named The Mansion. :-)
It wasn't open. :-(
From the hotel, we headed into downtown Lexington to check the place out. It had grown dark by then, so we decided to settle in at an Irish pub we happened upon by accident.
From the Irish pub, we drove to an English pub for dinner.
The pot roast was to die for. The Shepard's pie had mozzarella cheese on it....is this an English thing I'd never heard of before?
I'm not sure what I said before this shot was taken...but Mot was obviously perplexed by something. :-)
Mixed berry crepes for dessert.
