Saturday, we started our day with brunch at Brasserie by Niche French restaurant near Forest Park where the museums and Zoo are located. It has valet parking so you don't have to drive around to find street parking. After a lovely brunch we headed into the park. Forest Park has so many things to offer including a golf course. We stopped at the Science museum but decided not to go. The building's design was very unique but it looked like a typical kids' science museum. The Missouri History Museum gave us some insight on St. Louis. It's free and well worth the stop. We ran out of time for the Art Museum so we went on Sunday. The St. Louis art museum was impressive. It has a few of the masters: Picasso, Matisse, Van Gogh, Monet just to name a few. Mike took me to a place for brunch that he had gone to before with friends. It was called the Scape. I had the duck hash and Mike had the Crab Benedict. They both were so good that we shared. There was a Bloody Mary bar. It is always fun to make it yourself. After brunch, we took a stroll through the beautiful historic neighborhood near the restaurant and park. The historic homes on the gated streets were stunning. As we were exploring the I noticed a large dome peaking above the trees. As we were heading toward the dome, I was hoping it was the Cathedral. It was! Sunday mass was going on so I popped in for quick look but no photos of the inside.
Later we were grilling out at the RV park when our neighbors in a Newell motor coach stopped by. Their rig is off the charts! They have been full timers for 15 years and love it. They gave us, rookies, a few helpful tips. Very cool people. Meeting people from all walks of life is one thing we enjoy about being full timers.
