This will be the last blog about our second trip, I have truly enjoyed writing and shearing the photos and it helped me relive the trip again. After leaving Pella we headed toward Des Moines Iowa where we had lunch down town at the Old Spaghetti Works it was great then we drove to the State Capital it is a beautiful building and grounds. After words we talked about how close we are to the bridges of Madison county which we had read the book with the same name. So I suggested we are this close we might as well go and look them over so she put it into the Garmin and a way we went.
We drove to Winterset Iowa where the bridges or close by. We went to the information bureau where we picked up some info about the bridges, there is only one that you can drive over so we went out to it and drove over the bridge. We drove around town and we found something that I never knew about the duke you know John Wayne. He was born as Marion Morrison on May 26 1907 in Winterset Iowa. We drove by the house and the whole yard was full of American flags there was no place to park for the city was working on the roads so Charlotte just took a picture as we were driving by. http://www.johnwaynebirthplace.org/ we decided after this that we would head for our daughters house in Kansas where we stayed a few days before heading back home.
