A River Runs Through It

A favorite movie is "A River Runs Through It" which takes place in long ago Montana. One of the beauties of Missoula is the Clark Fork River, which runs through the city. K found a terrific bed and breakfast and the river ran right in front of it. I loved sitting in the dining room -- especially the day we had French toast with blueberry sauce -- having breakfast, chatting with K and watching the river.

We loved staying at Goldsmith's and watching the river

I don't think I could grow tired of this vista just two blocks from Goldsmith's

 Our view from the dining room...Across the bridge to the University of Montana

Downtown Missoula. This is a beautiful historic block, and the home of one of the best bookstores I've ever visited, Fact and Fiction. I wanted to read just about every book in their inventory. 

An extraordinary sky in big sky country

I love sharing my trip and hope you've enjoyed this visit to Missoula. Idaho photos are still to come. 

I won't be around to post tomorrow. This is theater season and my discount theater website is full of excitement. I got a ticket to see Linda Lavin tomorrow night in "Collected Stories," for which she just received a Tony nomination. Can't believe my good luck! I just about jumped out of my chair when I saw the ticket was available. It may be in the tip-top of the theater, but I am so looking forward to it. 

I'll be back on Friday with theater notes, Idaho and then there's Yummy Saturday to come. See you on Friday and have a great Thursday. 

On a different note, prayers and thoughts are in Nashville. I lived there for three years and am heartsick to see the damage from the flooding.

Great photos again - love the view from the B&B. There are so many amazing places in this world :)

The photos and videos of Nashville are truly heartbreaking. So much pain and sadness. My heart goes out to those poor people.

What great pictures. I've never been to Montana - some day I'll have to go there. Let's hope that Nashville is drying out now. Yes that was a terrible storm for those folks. and all of the se. Have a good time on this trip.

Wow, what great pictures! Thanks for sharing them, I might never make it there. I'll bet it's awesome to see real theater! I've only been to one dinner theater when we visited D.C..
