Front Doors at The Captain's Inn

Those doors are about 12 feet tall. The intricate carving is amazing.

Lucy, Uncle Bev, Mary Lee & Phil

This picture includes Lucy's cousin Mary Lee and her husband Phil. Mary Lee is Uncle Bev's daughter, and they help him out when he needs it. They directed us to JoDean's for dinner. Quite a good buffet.

Draw Bridge 1

This is an interesting bridge that brings Hiway 81 into Yankton from the south, crossing over the Missouri River. There is one lane on top coming into town, and one lane on bottom leaving. Obviously they need to raise it occasionally.

Victorian Rose

This is the room we stayed in. Strangely I apparently never took a shot of the actual room. Sorry, it was cute.

Brick Smokestack

The front of the building indicates this is a bike shop. Why a bike shop needs a smokestack like that, I have no idea.

Auld-Brokaw Trail

This trail follows the creek in the previous photo. Brokaw is TOM Brokaw. I think he's from Yankton and according to our host he contributed a million dollars to the bike trail.

Captain Marsh

This statue is the local riverfront park. Capt Marsh ran boats for Mr Coulson. Russell of the Captain's Inn is "irked" because the town has chosen to honor Marsh, when the guy who built his house isn't so recognized.

The Captain's Inn : Yankton, SD

This is the bed & breakfast where we stayed in Yankton. Very cool old house with some history. It was built by a guy named Coulson somewhere around the mid-late 1800's. The Missouri River flows nearby and he ran about 12 steamships between St Louis and Montana. The area's first millionaire as per Russell, the owner/operator of the Captain's Inn.

Uncle Bev and Lucy

This is my favorite picture from our trip to Yankton, SD. My wife Lucy is on
the right and her 100-year-old Uncle Bev is on the left. Bev is still pretty
sharp and takes care of himself for the most part. He appreciated our visit
and we are sure glad we went. I'm honored to have met him.

Stoney Creek Hallway

This was a good motel. A hunting lodgeish theme. Cutouts of moose
everywhere. Quite comfy and clean however. We had just rejected two
different rooms at the Ramada for smelling like overfull day-old ashtrays,
so Stoney Creek was great discovery.

St. Joe, MO. We ate there Wed night (4.18.07) starting a short but rewarding

expedition to the north. Many more photos to come.

the hood.

Boston's closer is pretty tough. Compare his expression to Zack's a few pictures ago.

Greinke to Youkalis

Zack Greinke delivers to Kevin Youkalis. Zack pitched a good game. Too bad Matsuzaka was tossing for the other side.

Red Sox Dugout

See all that media in front of the Sox' dugout? They all crossed the Pacific and half of North America just to see one guy pitch. Absurd.

The Dice-K Kids

This is a group of Japanese teenagers, who presumably traveled all the way to Kansas City from Japan, just so they could watch Daisuke Matsuzaka pitch. He struck out ten over 7 innings so I guess it's worth it if you into that sort of thing. These kids were into it. They were chanting "Dice-K" while posing for the fascinated Americans. You never saw so many phonecams.

I know nothing about the various avian species, but is this feathered one not long from the egg?
