Yesterday, Anne was off from school, so she had arranged a visit with Sharon, a friend from her Corps of Engineers days. They went to Kimmswick, a boutique Mississippi River town, south of Saint Louis. Anyway, it got her out of the city for the first time in a while and she liked it, she really liked it. Today, after Dave left to hang with his buddies and it was time for us to go bicycling, Anne announced that she wanted to get out-of-town again. We loaded up the bikes and headed across the river to Illinois.
We put-in at Collinsville, rode up to Edwardsville, circled round to Horseshoe Lake and then back to Collinsville. We saw fellow Team Kaldis members, Bob and Evelyn on the trails. They were doing the same loop as we were, only in reverse. Horseshoe was overrun with coots. When we got back to the car, there was a vintage car show getting underway at the neighboring Culver’s, a fast-food place. After we ate, we toured the cars. This show will make for a great warm-up for tomorrow’s annual Easter car show in Forest Park.
