After a day in Galena, we spent the night in Dubuque (cheaper). Someday we'll come back and stay in an adorable Bed and Breakfast, until then, it's Priceline negotiator for us.
This is downtown Dubuque. Brick everywherrre and life is good.
One of my friends, Kellie, told me about this. A guy lived on a bluff overlooking downtown and sick of his commute, he built a tiny railroad/elevator down the bluff. God bless quirky people.
The following two houses were right next to each other. When we were coming into town, I saw the towers peeking above the other buildings so I pointed and said, "There." So gorgeous and clearly in need of my tender loving care.
Can I move into this sun room?
Still mastering the photos in the glass.
But the important thing is that my pinky is up.
We fueled up on frites in Galena before going skiing in the afternoon. Skiing in the midwest, right?
All in all, a lovely little overnight, 2-day trip.
