I wandered up and down the streets and photographed the wonderful scroll work on the gables of the homes.
A roofer's nightmare
There was only one motel in the town. When I went to register I was met by a sign saying that the motel was closed until 4:00.
So I went to a museum next door instead.
But they don't open until May 1st. However, I walked around the sign that said "STOP" and photographed all the old buildings behind the museum.

Then I stopped by the banks of the Cedar River. It was so calm, sunny and warm.
Does this bridge look safe?
Before I left a nice couple told me of a B&B eight miles down the road -- so I hunted it down and fortunately they had a vacant room. I'll be staying here for two days while I do some research in Newhampton at the County Courthouse (on Court Street, of course).
I found two quilt supplies shops in Newhampton and bought fabric at each. Thought it would be a fun project to buy fabric along the way and make a memory quilt later.
