We drove back to the monument this morning on the way to Afton Station to admire our work from yesterday. It looks so good. In this pic, you can see the curb we unearthed, the junipers we planted around the stone, and the stenciled shield on the road. We are very proud!
Our day at Afton Station was generally copacetic, with guests arriving in bunches all day and never so many folks at once that we couldn't deal with each and every one individually. They came from Wichita KS, St, Paul KS, Evansville IN, Billings MO, Pawhuska OK, Granby MO, Palantine IL, Prague OK, Speedway IN, Amsterdam Netherlands, Northern England, and Belfast Northern Ireland.
It was great to see our friends, the Bremer family, from Speedway, IN. I feel especially close to these folks since I was the one who introduced Pat and Jennifer, an introduction that led to marriage, Grandson Jameson, and a big 'ol travel trailer in which they are headed out on Route 66 -- destination Tucumcari, NM.
This happy couple is from Warwick, England. They are truly enjoying their Route 66 trip. It's been a while since I've observed such enthusiasm!
Four friends from Amsterdam, Netherlands gathered around the guest book for this photo. They, too, are having a ball on their holiday.
This young couple is from Belfast, Northern Ireland.
And here, beyond Ron M's elbow, is our first visitor of the day, a gentleman from Wichita, KS. He stayed for a while and we had a good chat.
