Passing through St Louis Missouri, I spotted a distinguished old gentleman of a boarded up building and immediately my mind was envisioning the re-emergence of this office and warehouse building into a grand loft apartment building. Makes me sick to see such beauty covered with boards and left to the elements and the taggers. There should be a law.
I thought the arch to St Louis actually DID something – like maybe introduced a bridge entrance or something grand. It just sits there. A big old arch of steel. It’s pretty, but I mean it just sits there!
Now we end our day’s journey in Afton, Oklahoma (Grand Lake on Monkey Island). I checked. No monkeys. But a beautiful resort and staying in a small condo is way nicer than a hotel. Thanks, Chris Mundle! Even had a washer and dryer and we did a bit of laundry, ate dinner and then zzzzzzzzzzzzz.
