We did a day trip on the motorcycle to Millstream Gardens Conservation Area just outside of Fredericktown, Missouri, today.
We rode down to Caledonia first and stopped at the Old Country Mercantile for a frappe, and then up the street to the Caledonia Wine Cottage for a drink and I got a sandwich (the Italian). It didn’t have meat, which I don’t usually go for, but it was really good! It had tomato, pesto, mozzarella…I can’t remember what all. It was served with creamy (and delicious) cucumber salad. I think it was only about $6.00. They didn’t have a big selection of wines left because apparently there was a murder-mystery or something and a lot of people were drinking wine. I had some peach wine, brand unknown to me, and it was decent.
Getting to Millstream Gardens was a little sketchy since it was down a LONG gravel road (probably not nearly as long as it seemed on the bike). But it was worth it.
Here are a couple of the best pix I took of the kayaking we saw.
