It was one of those crisp Sunday mornings that I drug myself out of bed and headed off to Church. Following the service I was quite famished and not wanting to partake in the normal Sunday morning donut fare headed out the the door to take a drive to the local Bread Co. I hopped in old faithful who wasn't feeling so faithful that morning. Turned the crank and heard nothing but clicks. Ugh! I marched back into Church but my faithful spouse was already off teaching Sunday School. This must be my punishment for listening to my stomach rather than going to Bible Class. Frustrated I headed out the door again and looked aroun. Well . . . I could walk. I really hadn't donned my walking shoes that morning but well, I was hungry. Off I went.
As I started down the sidewalk I wondered how far it would go and if it would take me to my beloved breakfast haven? The first portion of my tour took me through the older part of town past the car wash, the smaller grocery stores in the area, a florist, card shop and a lawyer. Then on past a few other restaurants I thought for sure the sidewalk would end but it didn't. It just kept going. I passed the high school, some new strip malls and thought surely it would end here. But it didn't as I walked passed the newer large shopping chain grocery and more fast food. At the corner I could see breakfast across the street. As I waited for the light to change I thought about how lucky we are to have such a great home town within walking distance of a lot of conveniences. It wasn't a single development intended to be that way but it had evolved. A lot to choose from the town is growing in leaps and bounds but still holds an Old Town Charm. The train still runs through the middle of town and though it may hold us up a bit we still love seeing it. New Construction homes are every where. You have your choice of quaint older homes or designing your dream home.
The light changed. It was a large intersection and as I crossed the street the sidewalk picked up again. I noticed the sidewalk went past my breakfast place. I was tempted but couldn't continue. I had to make a stop. Rich hot coffe and a breakfast sandwhich my stomach was satisfied but you'll have to wait to find out where the sidewalk ends in Wentzville on my next trip for breakfast. On the other hand you could call us for a personal tour and we'll show you the homes available in the "Cross Roads of the Nation" known as Wentzville.
