We had a great omelette breakfast thanks to the Browns, friends from Retama Village with whom we stayed last night.
Here we are standing on their deck which overlooks the Mississippi. This is the obligatory photo, they told us, that they always take of Retama Village guests..
Our brewery destination was only 18 miles from their house, as the crow flies, but we had to go south to get to a bridge to cross the Mississippi, and then go north again. On the way, we stopped at a rest stop with some beautiful red buds and leaves.
We have been to this Harvest Host brewery before, and enjoyed it, so it is nice to be back. We got set up in their event center parking area. We are on a bubbling creek.
Joy is very happy here, among the fall flowers and trees.
We went in to the brewery to get warm, to use their wifi, and to kill some time. The brewery was started in 1852 and has a lot of character.
It has a national beer museum inside that we toured last year.
DINNER: We split their Tex-Mex flatbread and George had some beer cheese soup. Both very good. We ate and drank slowly to savor the evening (since the trailer was rather cold and dark).
BOOK: “Turkey Trot Murder” by Leslie Meier. I grabbed this book online while I was waiting for some others to become available. With its title, I wasn’t expecting much but it was actually decent. It is about a murder that takes place around Thanksgiving, but has a backdrop storyline about racism in our country. 3 stars out of 5
