Arts & Crafts, Cider & Donuts & a Winery.

Mike and Leslie and John and I had a day full of outings. Our first stop was the Sugar Mound Arts and Crafts Festival in Mound City, KS. The merchandise at the festival are made by local people. The admission and parking were both free. There were lots of things to look at and lots of people attending.




Our second stop was Miss B’s for lunch. We made it just in time to get the last table. Today the cafĂ© had a buffet complete with fried chicken!!! Oh yeah it was all good. I forgot to take a picture of the food. Sorry.

After our delicious lunch it was on to the Louisburg Cider Mill. They are known for their cider and donuts. It was very crowded here also. There were pumpkin sales, a festival with rides for the children and a live band playing. We bought cider and donuts for later.

A homemade vehicle in the parking lot. John walked over and talked to these people. It is part motorcycle and part Volkswagen.

By this time we were tired of crowds so we headed over to the Somerset Winery. We each sampled wines and ended up buying a bottle of the same kind then ventured outside to listen to music. The musician played keyboard, guitar, banjo, mandolin and harmonica. He played several different types of music and was entertaining.

Our last stop was McBee’s Bratwurst General Store. After grilling the brats last night we decided to get some more before leaving the area. These are the best we have ever had.

Tomorrow will be a travel day for us. We will be traveling on to Branson, MO.

Laugh everyday. Happy trails. Stay safe.
