When I wrote that we were going to be disconnected from the world for a time, I did not realize that since our last visit the entire park at Mississinewa Recreation Area has been wired for wifi and thus I was able to make a couple of posts while we were there.
It will not surprise you that we found plenty of time to partake of good food. Early and often, as it is sometimes said of voting.
I showed you yesterday a bit of our visit to the circus museum. While we were in downtown Peru I saw this old ad on the side of a building. I "collect" these, and they are becoming quite scarce as buildings are razed or walls are painted over. You may be able to tell that this was originally a Mail Pouch ad which was painted over to advertise Jacob Opp's Saloon.
Along the Mississinewa River east of Peru there is a steep escarpment going down to the stream. This area is called "Seven Pillars" for the river has carved pillars into the base of the cliff. We did not go down to the bottom to look at it, but there is this break in the surface where one can look down to the river and see one of the pillars. It is there just to the left of the greenery, not so impressive in the picture, but in 3-D it is quite interesting. (That pillar is a long way down from where I was standing.)
This was how we spent Monday evening. It rained all night, but cleared by five in the morning and the rest of the entire outing was beautiful.
BBBH refused to allow a little rain to dampen her enthusiasm for fireside fun.
