What more attractive sight after a winter walk along the towpath than the traditional British Pub.
The whitewashed walls reflect in the water, and the weeping willow seems to invite us in as it swoops low over the narrow boats moored to the river bank.
Although it is a cool day, the sun shining in the pastel blue sky make it warm enough for us to consider sitting outside to contemplate the British countryside over a pint.
Early morning on a bluff above the Mississippi River.
We leave our hotel early and set out up a track between over growing trees.
After a long climb, the road emerges from the trees, and suddenly we see the Mississippi River disappearing away into the distance.
It is an awe-inspiring sight, and we wonder at the magnitude of the scenery.
This scenic view draws us down past the Old Barge Inn on the left, along the riverside cottages, and into the tree line in the distance.
We imagine ourselves going into the Inn, and meeting the locals who have tales to tell of the way life used to be “in the old days”. Hearing them talk, it would be easy to recreate in our minds the bustle of a time when working barges moored here on their journey to London.
But for now, all is still and restful, allowing us a moment in time to stand and reflect.

Every day the sun sets, this is just another day, another sunset.
And yet each sunset is different, each sunset is uniquely special.
As we sit and contemplate the sun sinking into the river, we are struck with awe at the routine magnificence of the sight. It is just another sunset, but this one is ours
