Spent July 3rd in Hannibal, Missouri, hometown of Samuel Clemens aka Mark Twain. One of the many museums devoted to all things Twain showcased First Editions of several of his works.
I also had the pleasure of meeting Tom Sawyer and Becky Thatcher.
Cruises on the riverboat, Mark Twain, were also quite popular.
For the athletic ones in the crowd, there was a Mud Volleyball competition. The players were serious about the game and the spectators were equally as serious about the mud. It was a spectacle that Tom and Huck would have been proud in which to participate.
We capped off the weekend with a fabulous fireworks display.
I didn't do much writing or reading, but certainly was inspired by a lot of the sights!
