Travels from Missouri to Indiana...

We left Gasconade Hills Resort at around 09h30 on Sunday, 2nd July, after a lovely weekend with family. We split the five-hour journey up into several parts. We stopped and ate an early lunch at a Cracker Barrel restaurant along the way and then drove on to St. Louis, where we visited The London Tea Room. (Pictured here.)

Here we met up with our friends, the Maley family, who also happened to be visiting St. Louis as we were travelling through. We had a lovely tea and enjoyed some English/Commonwealth treats before heading on our way. We also saw some lovely old buildings in St. Louis - like this large church - and drove past the Gateway Arch on our way home. We're already planning a trip back to explore more of St. Louis in the near future! :)

An hour-and-a-half later we entered Indiana. :)
