Default Its been a while,

but thanks Jim for reminding me about the LEE, and Mark for verifying what I remembered about that landing. It was a neat little trip on the Gateway boat from the St. Louis levee to Kimmswick. Tom had people ride the boat down, eat in town, and then bus back to St. Louis, and vice versa. I opted to take the boat both ways but still had a little time in town, especially to hit the Blue Owl Restaurant - or more specifically their baked goods! I'm guessing this trip was at least 8 years ago, so I imagine more shops have opened, especially in anticipation of the gambling boat, which never materialized I think.
