Great American Baseball Tour — Day 3

Tuesday, April 17, 2018

clipart carToday was another travel day — from Sheridan, Illinois to Branson, Missouri. It was quite a long drive or folks our age (509 miles) but we had a day of rest yesterday and another tomorrow. Started the day at 31 degrees, ended at 79 degrees!

While driving through St. Louis we could see the arch, but not my camera. LOL However, this is what it looks like.


We also drove by Busch Stadium where the St. Louis Cardinals play. We visited that stadium several years ago and saw the Cardinals play the Chicago Cubs with Jim’s brother and wife. Every time I see the stadium I think about the Anheuser-Busch commercials with the Clydesdales. They are so creative. 

Dinner tonight was at Cheddars where we indulged in their Famous Monster Cookie — fresh-baked huge chocolate chip cookie, with two scoops of vanilla ice cream, chocolate sauce, whipped cream, and even a cherry on top. At least we shared!

So now we are all tucked in at the Holiday Hills Resort in Branson. They apparently didn’t have any handicap units available so they upgraded us to a Presidential suite.
