LeClaire, Illinois~Second Quad Cities Adventure Day 2: Part 1 The Old Town

  Here I am again! Been keeping myself occupied as usual. Hope you guys loved the last post! If you all missed it, here's the link for Day 1 in the Quad Cities.
  This post will be Day 2, where most of the activity was. Day two will be broken up into different posts, as we did so much that day--went to a botanical garden, a park, Walnut Grove, Chocoholics (unfortunately, no pics were taken), Antique Archeology (might have heard of it from the American Pickers show!) and several ADORABLE shops along the streets of the old parts of LeClaire.

This is one of my favorite shops! Got a lovely hat here.  It was a beautiful, quaint shop!! Hope to go again!

I struggled at first about whether or not to get it, but I knew I'd regret it if I didn't--not very often that something compliments me so much!

These show when the building was finished. I thought that was so interesting. It was fun looking for the date blocks.

    1. I really did love that area. I'm hoping it won't be too long before we're able to go back. Officially in love with the Mississippi River.

    1. It really is quite a peaceful place. I enjoyed it so much. It had that small, harkening back to old times feel. Very relaxing and beautiful!
