Rest day - ahhhh. Today's goal was not to get on our bikes at all. Legs and butts were grateful. Our hotel is right downtown making a walking tour easy.
Revitalization of downtown, known here as The District, includes lots of public art.
There are 7 colleges in Columbia, including the University of Missouri, Columbia College, and Stephens College.
Each year the city chooses an artist to paint one of the traffic control boxes. On the other side, you see the back of the cat.
When you look "through" the windows, you can see the representations of the buildings that exist.
Lots of walking meant an afternoon treat at the Velvet Cupcake was in order.
Tiramisu cupcake and a peanut butter and jelly cupcake. Delish.
In the late afternoon, the rain began. Severe thunderstorms and local flooding are expected over the next two days. We will keep a weather eye and make a careful decision before leaving tomorrow.
