2018 Road Trip – Day 25

Monday, August 27, 2018

As we were getting ready to leave the hotel, the front desk called to say they were having water problems and would be turning off the water shortly. Luckily, we were almost ready. We brushed our teeth and left. It was 9:30 AM and 80 degrees.

We went through Hermann, MO, which was a charming little town.

Not far down the road, in Owensboro, we found two barns:

In Potosi we found a really old church with a cool looking steeple.

And another church.

When we got to Ironton, we found this church which I think might be one of the prettiest little churches I’ve ever seen.

St. Paul’s Episcopal Church, Ironton, MO

A courthouse and a church in Fredericton.


St. Michael Catholic Church

We didn’t stop anywhere for lunch so when we saw this ice cream shop we stopped. I got a hot fudge sundae. The thing was huge, but unfortunately, it wasn’t very good.

We found two more barns and then drove into Cairo. There are some beautiful homes and buildings in Cairo but the place looks like a ghost town.

St. Patrick’s Catholic Church, Cairo, IL

We got to the Drury Inn in Paducah at 6:00 PM. It was 94 degrees–yuck! This was our last night on the road.
