A little south of town is a road that winds back into the Missouri River bottoms. Once a bustling town where cargo was transferred from river to rail, the only thing that remains is Claysville Store, which is actually a restaurant. The rail has been turned into a biking/hiking trail and the river relocated itself about a mile away. The store fell into disrepair until new owners turned it into a home-style restaurant, with a completely renovated interior. Now it’s packed every weekend they’re open. And what better place to find burnt sienna that a rustic ol’ rural country store turned eatery? Claysville Store retains much of it’s historic charm(?) by not renovating the exterior. Seriously, if you didn’t know the deliciousness offered, you’d never step foot inside.
Claysville Store is a home-grown operation; family-owned and operated. We frequent the place often, preferring to give a local family our money instead of the chain-type restaurants where we never see the owners. When Peanut and her family lived with us, we introduced her to Claysville and let her *explore* the grounds when she was old enough to appreciate the unique discoveries. Of course, Nana was right there with her camera! 😉
Project64’s challenge this week was to put together a diptych or triptych with burnt sienna. And I always love the Creative Exchange, where I can share some of my right brain.
Why not check out both places and play along with us?
