My wife and I randomly hit the road Saturday and ended up in Ste. Genevieve, MO, one of the oldest (maybe the oldest) settlements west of the Mississippi. I got to see a house my great great great grandma was born in (built by her grandfather) that was actually for sale. We stayed at the Main Street Inn in old town and had a blast being out of the city. We were greeted by an older couple (proprietors) with glasses of wine when we arrived and they gave us the tour and all of the information we could have ever wanted about the town's ammenities. After a night on the town (shopping for antiques) we were woken up to a 4 course breakfast with the other guests. Pork Loin, a godly flaky eggy torta, fruit parfaits, coffee, tea, and great conversation with the old tymers.

Later that day we ended up traversing the hills, attacking wineries, and taking photos. This is the first one that caught my eye. More to come.
