Mississippi River by Morning

After two full days on the road, navigating crazy interstate traffic I am safely home, and can honestly say, “There’s no place like Doright Manor!”

Yes, I’ll miss my grandkids and my daughter, but I was really glad to be reunited with my husband and my shower, my cats, and my own bed, not necessarily in that order. It is good to be home.

The last thing I did before leaving Port Byron, Illinois, early Sunday morning was to drive down the Main Street of the small town to take a picture or two of the mighty Mississippi River that divides Illinois from Iowa.

Across the river one can see a portion of Le Claire, Iowa, reflected perfectly in the still water.

And here the mist partially obscures the bridge connecting the two states.

Moody, right? I just couldn’t leave without trying to capture the Mississippi in the morning.

Peace, people.

  1. moody and misty and marvelous.
    You captured a lot of the essence of road trips too – from the joy of our destination (seeing family in this case) the extras (the moody river photo, which would make Twain smile) – to the navigating – to the COMING home all sculpted and changed — no place like home – esp after a nice road trip.

  2. Love those photos. I’ve been through that area quite a bit and The Great River Road never disappoints regardless of season. I would love to live in that area – maybe someday. Thanks for sharing those great photos.
