After spending time at the Budweiser Brewery, we went to get a close look at the Gateway Arch. By this time the temperature was rising sharply.
go to the top of the Arch; I have added this to my bucket list. Cliff will not be joining me, since he has issues with heights.
From the Arch, we strolled to Laclede's Landing, downtown St. Louis' oldest district, in search of lunch.
Hannegan's turned out to be an excellent choice. Cliff and I shared a huge Reuben sandwich with corned beef piled high. It was a more-than-adequate meal.
Sunday morning we tried to get an early start, since the forecast was for temperatures in the upper nineties. We left at 8:30 with Pat and Charlene ahead of us. It sure was nice to see them up there once again, and hear their Harley roar.
We weren't all that far from home at Concordia, but Cliff felt we needed to stop and cool off. That was probably a wise decision. We pulled into McDonald's and got indulged in a frappe, which will cool you off from the inside out.
Home looked good to us and the air conditioning felt heavenly. Looking at the ten-day forecast, something tells me we won't be taking any long motorcycle trips for awhile. Maybe just a short jaunt once in awhile during the morning hours.
