Pierre, SD

We made the paper. Pierre, SD, really treated us royally. They let our group of 50 RV take over much of the city park and they sent the reporters out to interview us.

Of course we took more bike rides. From the city park we could bike across the river, to LaFramboise Island or to Farm Island.

We took a river tour on the Capital City Queen.

Be sure and take everything you want when you head down to the dock. It's a long way back to the house.

We even kayaked the Missouri River. It was such a hot day we had lots of fun with the water guns.

The State Capital Bldg. Some took a tour, but I went bike riding instead.

One day we biked out to Ft. Pierre Chouteau. This old bridge is from the 1800s, although it has been moved from its original location.

This is all that is left of the original fort. The fort was not a military fort, but a fur trading fort.

The confluence of the Bad River and the Missouri, where Lewis and Clark met for the first time with the Teton Sioux Indians.

The VFW loved us. They even mentioned us on their menu board.

But then we had about 35 of us for dinner, too.

After dinner, upstairs, we went to the dance. I guess all the ladies were already dancing because Phil and Max had to dance with each other.

And Bob seranaded us with his wonderful bagpipe.
