During our visit in Peoria, we enjoyed a bicycle ride on the Rock Island Trail
-- a multi-use trail that follows the old Rock Island railway.
We also enjoyed a delicious typical Chinese meal prepared by the mother of Jessica, a friend of our sister and niece. Jessica's parents are in Peoria for a month celebrating Jessica's graduation from Bradley University.
We were joined by more friends for a picnic along Grandview Drive
where we enjoyed a spectacular view.
