Sunday Drive

We took a spur-of-the-moment drive yesterday, just heading out west with no particular destination in mind, ending up in Council Grove.  

We ate the buffet at Hays House.  Hays House, which opened in 1857, is the oldest continuously operating restaurant west of the Mississippi.  It was busy, but there was plenty of room.  Our waitress encouraged us to take a peek at the basement after eating and explore the upstairs as well.  I enjoyed the fresh peach pie (topped with homemade whipped cream) for dessert.  Yummy!

We drove around to see some of the houses around town and got out to walk a tiny bit of the Neosho Riverwalk before heading home.   It's lovely, but we were running out of time, since we'd gotten an awfully late start in the day. 

Wild sunflowers along the side of the road are profuse this year--bright yellow faces on tangled stalks.  Now and then was a purple blur of asters.  Even the goldenrod was beautiful from a safe distance!  Broom weed was just beginning to turn.  This September is very green and yellow.

Coming up soon.........I'll post cards inspired by this trip!

Thanks for visiting!
Come back soon!
