Serene Sunday

For today's sunrise photos, I tried to catch it behind a Historic Route 66 sign. Bad idea. Oh well, the sun did rise, and that's all that matters.

Both Betty W. and Betty B. stopped in briefly today, but for the majority of the day I was alone at Afton Station. Although it was busy, it wasn't crazy busy. In fact, it was a very enjoyable day.

Our 19 visitors hailed from Claremore OK, Dallas TX, Bath PA, Ferrell TX, Owasso OK, Joplin MO, Dennard AR, Adelaide Australia, Berlin Germany, Port Credit Ontario, and Tortola, British Virgin Islands.

Four of my foreign visitors arrived at the same time, so I coerced them into posing for this international photo. Here's the lady from Ontario, the gentleman from the British Virgin Islands, and the couple from Berlin, Germany. It turns out that they are all on somewhat the same travel schedule and have met up at several other spots along the Route. Dean Walker up in Kansas was the one responsible for making sure they'd all stop at Afton Station. Thank you, Dean. It was an exceptionally enjoyable visit.
Here's the magnet display that took a header onto the floor yesterday. Several magnets were sold today, but the rest are back in line, awaiting the next person who dumps them. :-)

Who were your guests from Port Credit Ontario. I was born and raised in Port Credit.

We are still on schedule for our arrival at Afton Station on Tuesday around noon.

I don't know her name, Bill. She was the one on the left in the photo. We can look her up in my guest book when you get here on Tuesday. Looking forward to seeing you.
