The Great River Road….
We stopped at the lock and dam outside of Le Claire, Iowa to see if we could spot an eagle. None were flying but we enjoyed watching the pelicans float down the river fishing and then flying back up to do it again.
A visit to Antique Archaeology, home of the tv show American Pickers, is always necessary if you are in the area. Photo ops required.
We have yet to meet Mike, Frank or Danielle but it’s always fun to peek inside.
Following the Mississippi River past Dubuque, we dropped in on the Field of Dreams movie site.
Of course, we had to run the bases.
We then headed for one of our favorite towns, Guttenberg, Iowa. It is a charming place that takes its name from the inventor of movable type, Johannes Gutenberg and is located along the limestone bluffs of Northeast Iowa. The riverfront limestone buildings were built by German immigrants in mid to late 19th century when the town was sizable and nearly all German. Our pit stop for the night was The Eagle View Motel.
The Eagle View is a 14 room motel perched on the bluffs overlooking the river and run by Brian Street.
What a perfect place to relax and the views of the Mississippi….majestic!
Truly an Eagle’s View as we saw them riding the air currents over our heads.
We had a marvelous time. Bark at you later. ~ Indy and Lucy
