The boys and I left Oklahoma a day early to trek east to see the Heavener Runestone.
My oldest especially wanted to see it. It was a beautiful spot, and while there have been some questions about its authenticity, I do believe it is possible that Vikings could have come to this location via the route suggested. I wish they would excavate the cave site because I think it could be enlightening. Regardless, we had a lot of fun!
We stayed over at a bed and breakfast in Mount Vernon, Missouri. On the way through St Louis we stopped at a wonderful fair trade store – Zee Bee Market – and the store manager got a great pic of us!
I’ve had plenty of time to knit as the boys have shared driving duty with me, but this is all I’ve managed.
And that was the best pic I could manage of the knitting on my lap in the car. Still, it won’t be long until I’m on sleeve island!
