Dale and I spent the day in Old Town St. Charles today, mostly because we've never been there after all these years of living in the St. Louis area. And it was our anniversary and we wanted to do something. Anything. My favorite part was coming across a huge scupture of Lewis and Clark with their dog.
Ok, we had to keep going. No, wait just one more. I loved this dog, he looked like he might have been a Golden Retriever, but no, he was a Great Newfoundland whose name was Seaman. Frankly if I was the guy in the pointy hat, I'd not have sat (or stood) for this scuplture.
Here are a few other things we saw today.
This is a bandstand with a beautiful stone walkway leading to...bathrooms. Dale said, "I think the seminary could do this out in the park, wouldn't it look great." I thought it would and people would especially like the restrooms.
The first Missouri Capitol which was set up to be only temporary until state officials decided on a permanent place.
Nice way to spend the day, but we walked a lot, it got very muggy so we had an early dinner in St Charles and headed home.
