After a 1hr 45 minute drive , we arrived in Ste Genevieve, Historic town for many reasons,mostly for its preserved architecture.

Brunch in the "Old Brick House" Oldest/first brick building , north of the Mississipi.

Ian & I went to the Museum, a fascinating insight into life during the 1800's.

Hollie checked into Ste Genevieves church ,for a catch up with him upstairs.

The church is home to an incredible number of religous relics.
