Today was a very special day. Charlene flew to Springfield, Missouri to join me in Branson! We enjoyed driving between the towns reminiscing about living in Missouri more than 3 decades ago. When we arrived in Kansas City, we were newlyweds and I was starting my Pharm.D. program. It felt like we had come full circle, now driving through the Ozarks together as a recently retired couple.
We enjoyed dinner together at a highly recommended independent hamburger shop. The burgers were fantastic! Next we drove to an area called Branson Landing. They had some nice shops and amazing fountain created by the same group that made the fountain at the Bellagio in Las Vegas.
As we walked through the various shops we found a local moonshine store. We sampled 4 different flavors and picked Berry Moonshine. One of the fun aspects of traveling around the US is being able to discover various wineries, distilleries, and breweries.
