11/17 RTE, Sabula, Iowa
Assuming the weather is somewhere around 50 and dry, I'm headed to Sabula, Iowa for some of the best homemade pie in the area. Anyone interested in joining me? When - November 17, 2007 at noon. Where - Island City Cafe, Sabula, Iowa (just southwest of Galena, IL).
As of now there are 3 hardy (crazy?) people going to Iowa for pie on Saturday. We are meeting at the Elk in Elkhorn (on the Town Square) at 7:30am for breakfast and hope to be back before dark. Anybody else interested?
How was the ride to Sabula? The pie?
I rode through Sabula about a year ago, when I was doing a story for Road Runner magazine (published August 2007). A long time ago, when I was teaching at Loras College, Dubuque, I took my photojournalism class to Sabula to do a "Day in the Life" photo project. It was a great experience for the class.
Thanks for reminding me of Sabula, Iowa's only island city.
