Hannibal, Missouri

Tom Sawyer’s House and the Whitewashed Fence

We went about 30 miles north this morning, to the historic town of Hannibal, Missouri, home of Samuel Clemens (Mark Twin) and Tom Sawyer.  We have been here before, but it was nice to see it again.  The city has done some upgrades since we were here last. 

Tom Sawyer and Huck Finn

We walked around town for most of the day.  We saw Tom Sawyer’s house, Huck Fin’s House, Becky Thatcher’s House, and much much more.

Mississippi River

After that we drove to a park near by and sat at the overlook for a long time and soaked up the sunshine.  The high today was 82 degrees!!!  nice.  People are so friendly; we visited with other people there including one lady from Waconia, Minnesota! 

Watching a Barge Being Filled

There was a great view of the Mississippi River.  We watched while the grain elevator across the river was filling barges.
