St. Louis - Day 4

Sunday came too soon. We fell in love with St. Louis, and didn't want to leave. We got up, packed up, checked out, and went back to the West end to enjoy the cute street one last time. We decided to trade our daily Starbucks for a coffee from what looked like a cute local coffee shop on this street. The night before this coffee shop looked very popular and cute. It was very quaint on the outside, but the minute we stepped inside, the whole image was ruined. It smelled like a smoky gas station. Plus it was more expensive than Starbucks (imagine that!) So we decided that we didn't want to ruin our wonderful vacation with a yucky coffee shop, so we walked a few feet down the street to our trusty Starbucks. It was delicious!!! the rest of the morning we spent looking at and taking pictures of the beautiful buildings of St. Louis. All the beautiful churches, especially the steeples, and then we stopped to go through the Scott Joplin museum. After that it was time to head home. We made one more stop for gas, and lunch, and then started the 5.5 hour trek home. Goodbye beautiful St. Louis! We enjoyed our stay.
