Another wonderful day to cycle. Most of the day was in the 70s and by mid-afternoon it was 81 degrees. The breeze was light. Such conditions are ideal for me. I rode without using my nasal spray and I did not have any trouble, even being near the harvesting.
The Illinois people are so friendly. Every farmer will wave as you pass by. I feel right at home.
I took a side trip to the Shoal Creek Nature Preserve outside Litchfield. What a pleasant place to explore on foot.
This cafe was started in Carlinville, IL in 1924 and was moved to Litchfield when the route changed in 1929. This building was opened in 1935 and is said to be the oldest operating cafe on Route 66. Still a favorite after nearly 100 years! In 2018 Nick and Demi became the current owners. Thanks for carrying on the great service and food.
This is a nice local museum and welcome center in Litchfield . We take such pride in our towns don't we. I love local history and seeing the old photos.
I love my riding days and look to find interesting and informative items to share.
