Day 2

Monday we started at the City Museum in St. Louis. What an impressive and unique place! We enjoyed climbing around and exploring everything. In the afternoon we headed to St. Charles to a Lewis and Clark Boat House. It was a small museum dedicated to Lewis and Clark right on the Missouri River. St. Charles was the first capitol of Missouri, and the Corps of Discovery spent a few days there preparing for their journey west. (One Private in the party was sentenced to 50 lashes after enjoying a ball thrown in their honor a little too much!)  We were a little disappointed to discover that the full-size replica keelboats were not there, as they are currently in Canada for the filming of an HBO miniseries. We walked along the Missouri River to a giant statue of Lewis, Clark, and Seaman (Lewis’ dog). Then we walked up to historic brick-lined Main Street for some ice cream before continuing west to spend the night in Columbia.
