Here are the pics from our little day date in Clinton, Iowa. We got to Iowa late the night before, and so we ordered food to-go from this restaurant called the Candlelight Inn. We were just ready to chill out in our hotel room, but when we got to the restaurant to pick up our food, we knew we had to come back the next day!
The restaurant looked over the Mississippi River, and there were blue and white docks everywhere and a lighthouse! We sat in the bar area of the restaurant next to these floor to ceiling windows and enjoyed the view and each other’s company. Greg was so excited about his hunt that he did that morning, and he was even able to point out the spot on the river that he was on.
We then headed on our journey home, and listened to a podcast- one of our favorite things to do in the car together! We listened to This American Life, one of our go-to’s! Just a little side note, too, if you are looking for a really good, can’t stop listening podcast, check out Dirty John. I finished it in two days, and listened to it on Saturday as I cleaned and packed for our trip.
The funniest part of our drive home was when I took out a piece of gum I was chewing and popped a brand new piece in my mouth. Greg looked at me like I was crazy, and I told him it was out of flavor. He was like, how are you chewing another piece of gum, and I don’t know why, but it made me laugh so hard. I just can’t resist Mentos gum!
I can’t wait to find some more little spots like this one to explore with him. Also, I really want to visit Lake Tahoe. I was on Airbnb’s website researching places to visit, and omg is it beautiful!
