Gateway Arch
St. Louis, MO

We also took a stroll through the Arch park, and Mary now has a mad crush on the arch itself. Is it possible to love a structure? She thinks so. She admits she's probably the last person to figure this out, but it's so beautiful and graceful, lean, curvaceous and sinuous, different from this angle and different again from that one, reflecting light and holding the warmth from day's sun. Wow.

The wait to get in to actually go up in the arch was way too long but we didn’t care – just being in its presence was enough for us.

A couple of blocks away is the Laclede’s Landing area, a restored riverfront area of shops, restaurants, bars, and more that was packed with people attending a blues festival when we were there.
