OK –So it’s a bit dramatic for the start of a vacation………but it does feel a bit like that.
We got off to a good start this morning – everything loaded up last night, so all we had to do this morning was to hook up and head off.
We stopped for lunch at Charlotte’s Eats and Sweets in Keo, AR (just south of Little Rock) to continue our evaluation of Southern Living’s “Best Pies of the South”. This place is similar to Mammy’s Cupboard (south of Natchez, Miss) only without the Mammy. They served very good sandwiches, and, indeed, the Coconut Cream pie lived up to it’s reputation………..very,very good!
The rest of today we traveled a very familiar road heading towards Iowa. We stopped for the night at Carthage, MO. After setting up the camper, we decided to see if we could find the infamous ‘Precious Moments Chapel’.
But, Alas….. it was closed! And so, we were spared a total sugar overdose for the day. ; - )
