** We saw a building by the Exit back to I-44, and stopped in. The name on the building was "Get Your Click's on Route 66." Unfortunately, they are in the process of opening the place, but we did get to talk with the owner, last name Click. This will no doubt become a regular stop for us
** Drove I-44 back to Lebanon and then took Missouri-64 about 13 miles to Bennett Spring State Park.
** We've often heard about it, but this was our first time there and well worth the short drive. Bennett Spring is known for its rainbow trout and there were a lot of people fishing both off the banks of the stream and in it (wearing those waders).
** We went to the restaurant there which is in a building constructed in 1920. I had never had trout, so this seemed a good time to order it. I ordered the rainbow trout almandine for $15 which came with a salad bar and two sides. That was sure money well-spent. I know one more place I'll be eating at the next time through.
