It's cold & rainy in Iowa.

Here we are on the banks of the DesMoines River. It's rainy and cold but feels like fall. Did a little antiquing today in Bonaparte, Bentonsport, Kaseoqua (or something like that) & various other small towns. The car is filling up fast and we still have more stops ahead. We're having such a good time and lots of laughs.
This is the Bonaparte Inn where we're staying. Tonight we're the only guests and it's kind of spooky. The service here is wonderful & probably the main reason we keep coming back. We had appetizers & wine in front of the fireplace tonight & tomorrow morning they'll have coffee outside our room and breakfast in the dining room. It's great!


This is Bonaparte's Retreat where we had dinner this evening. We felt so wasteful because we all had to leave half of our meal. Why do they serve so much!!! But it was good.
Tomorrow we're heading north so we have to leave Bonaparte behind but we always return. Later.

Are the Bonaparte's Inn and Bonaparte's Retreat in the same building? Sounds like a really neat place!

I so enjoyed meeting you, your sister's and Brenda! Thank you so much for stopping by and especially for putting a little fun in my day. From your purchases, I could tell that I would LOVE your shop. I hope to make it there one day. Maybe Barb and I will have to go on a little excursion! Thanks again - Polly
