penguin chick pictureHI EVERYBODY!!

We don't have many places to go to in Antartica. Just the same old floating ice chunks and such. Phil and Angie did find a really nice bed and breakfast to stay at in a town called Galena, Illinois. Looks like they had lots of fun there.

See you later!

We had decided to take a well deserved mini-vacation but didn't want the same stuff as always. So Angie went looking for a bed and breakfast and found one in Galena, which was someplace we had talked about going for a while. The Huckleberry Inn was definitely as cozy as it looks!

We had breakfast out here Sunday morning.
Even though Barb and George Annino were our hosts, Shadow runs the inside of the house..
and Sierra watches the outside!
A very quiet, small-town main street.
Crowded with shops, cars..
and motorcycles.
Bikes with trailers.
Choppers from Miami too.
Nice paint job.
Sunday we toured the town in a trolley like this.
