We are moving along on our Lewis and Clark trail to the Oregon coast. Between the travel, sightseeing, and poor Wi-Fi, I am getting way behind in documenting this trip. Our first stop for this journey is St Charles, MO , where Lewis and Clark came together to start this epic adventure. The old town ST Charles remains as close as possible to the way it looked when the adventurers arrived. Many of the structures still date to that era and it remains a quaint reflection of that era.
We enjoyed walking the streets and imaging the hectic preparations they were making before heading west on the Missouri river. We had a nice lunch at the Mother in Law house. The story goes that when the couple was building a new home, the wife wanted her mother to live with them. He agreed and built the house in two sections with no connection between the two halves. It is said that the ghost of the mother can still be felt as she remains lonely looking for someone to communicate with. We enjoyed lunch without encountering the mother-in law.
