A Day Trip to Southwest St.Louis County
Our last posting, written by John, may have left some of you confused. Seems like last week we were in southern Illinois, and this week in St.Louis. That is pretty much what happened, on Monday of this week we did move to St.Louis. Perhaps it will be a short stay, we do not know as yet until we make the round of all our doctor appointments. The weather, until today, has been quite warm here and staying cooped up in our home with the air conditioning running did not seem like a good option for us. Hence we decided to go on a road trip south on Wednesday. It was certainly a day of unexpected surprises. Our first stop of the day was to be Engelmann Woods, however we decided to first check out the town of St.Albans. We soon discovered that the town has many small subdivisions with such lovely names as the Moors, Heathers and the Hollows, to name but a few. It is also a town largely dominated by country club and at least two golf courses. We learned that the town was founded in 1837 and has at the least two historic buildings.
