Day Trip to Kimmswick

Well, it wasn't even a whole day really, nor even a whole afternoon.  Once a month, Dave drives over three hours to preach at St. John's Lutheran Church in Pocahontas, MO, a church currently without a pastor.  I went with him this time, and we stopped at the tiny historic town of Kimmswick on the way home.  Truth be told, we had less than two hours there, but it was fun.

There are lots of cute little shops and restaurants.  Our first stop was The Christmas House, which was crammed with Christmas trees which were crammed with ornaments.

Sorry for the blurriness!

And that was just one room!

The town is full of old houses . . . old by American standards, anyway.  This one houses a museum, which we did not get to visit.  (It was closed.)

These buildings were (are still?) a winery.

Not all the buildings are made of logs.  The Kimmswick City Hall~

We saw this in a shop and it made us laugh~
