Saint Francis river and Fredericktown Mo.
for our ACA Instructor Recert.
I camped out at Silver mines and the next morning
went into Fredericktown for breakfast. Caught up
with the people at A&M during breakfast and all their tales about the tornado a few years ago.
The restaurant owner also owns a beauty shop which she lost to the tornado, but has since had it and her home rebuilt.
They have also preserved an old cabin or two in town. . . .
Some of the prettiest farm and ranch land in Missouri.
When I first started coming down to the river, there was an old log cabin in the beginning stages of collapse. After almost 20 years it still has not given up.
Nice partial dovetail notches on the ends of the logs.
On Sunday daughter and I visited the Queen of Scotland at the St. Charles Tartan days.
She also tried her hand at tossing or moving the hammer.
The day on the river was great, as was the time I spent with daughter, but
Tartan Days was very disappointing this year. . .
I apologize for the spacing. Blogger is being a little cranky today.
