St. Louis, Missouri

Heading west from Bloomington, Indiana, we quickly entered Illinois.
Then we quickly left Illinois and were once again in our home state of Missouri.

We spent three nights in the historic St. Louis suburb of St. Charles, Missouri at the Sundermeier RV Park.

We drove by the famous St. Louis Arch.

We visited friends Matt and Jeff at their business, Four Muddy Paws.
A complete mutt store must include gourmet doggie treats...
resident dog food connoisseurs...
and self-service doggie wash bays.
We had a barbecue at our friends' mansion. It was a little bigger than our motorhome...

and the cat even had its own apartment!
The next day we took a bicycle tour of a new development nearby called New Town.
New Town features traditional homes, as well as housing inspired by cities in America and around the world, brought together in a small town community.
Row houses feature front stoops of yesteryear.

To be continued...
