Yesterday was fun! We drove on the Illinois part of the Lincoln Highway.There was Lots to Look at and Learn. We went to a working windmill and that windmill’s center/gift shop in Fulton. Windmills even have their own Language. If the propellers are put a certain way, it gives a certain message.
We Lounged in a bench swing by the Mississippi River. Then, we went to the “Heritage Canyon” in Fulton and learned how things were like in the 1860’s. We had Lunch at a meat market where they were grilling outside!
We saw the only known statue of President Lincoln in military dress in Dixon. We went to a watermill and Learned about how you could change revolutions the water wheel by using different size gears. Then we went to this shop called Dairy Delight. I had a Heath Flurry and my parents had a malt. We stopped at a gazebo in Malta and Learned about the 1ST seedling mile made. It showed the nation what Long Lasting roads can do for us.
Fun Fact: Did you know that the Lincoln Highway was America’s first coast-to-coast highway? It’s older than Route 66!
