We took a break in Louisiana, MO and enjoyed a river side table.
We stopped in Elsberry at the grocery store to buy more bananas and peanut butter, we go through A LOT of each! We took a break in Foley where the police chief, Max Collier stopped to visit and encourage us. By 11:30 am it was 90 degrees on the car thermometer and Russ said the top temperature on his bike gauge was 104 degrees - lots of heat radiated off the pavement!
We headed into suburbs of Saint Louis. Some of the roads were VERY busy, but God heard our prayers and guided us safely. We are staying in a motel near the St. Louis airport. After arriving, we cooled off in the pool, then drove down to the arch for some pictures.
Overall a wonderful day! Russ biked 90 miles today. Please pray us through St. Louis tomorrow, I think I'll be glad when we're out of here! Too much traffic!!!
Thanks again for all your prayers and encouragement!
Here's a church we saw along the way today!
