Sunday Exploration

So after a full day at church, grocery shopping, how to end the day? Why exploring the river ways in your Sunday best. We went to find the Blue hole and found the Jacks Fork river and wonderful scenic vistas. The road there is gravel and rock and requires 4 wheel drive and is full of wildlife. Then you find a gravel bar and park and wow, so pretty.

Looking for the river and the swimming hole

Wonderful caves to explore

Clear cold water

A spring

What a view

Going to be fun this summer

Pink milkweed loaded with butterflies on the back road. It was a great way to end the day. Wish I had brought my swimsuit.

Goodbye and Hello in St. Louis

We said goodbye to our friends as they get ready to go back to Tanzania for 3 more years. It was a nice visit and we learned a lot about missionary work in Africa. We were given a ton of donated items from our church for their return trip. Seeds, medical supplies,books, shoes and more are packed and ready for the long journey home. We said goodbye in St.Louis and then headed out to explore.

We went to the City Museum in St. Louis. It is a boring name for a far our fun place.You can crawl, swing, climb and touch the stuff at this place. It is for all ages. This is just the floor.
