For the next cake Miles and I decided to embark

On a journey much like Lewis and Clark.

We traveled to the boat house in St. Charles, MO

To find the spot where the duo left from so long ago.

In memory of their momentous trip,

The boat house offers something you don’t want to skip.

On the bottom level just behind the cake,

Are full size replicas of the boats Lewis and Clark decided to take.

And besides the boats, which are incredible to be sure,

Inside the museum you can get an idea of what life was like in 1804.

What’s more, there’s even a group of modern day performers,

Who set out every year and sail the same route as those early explorers.

So with historical pride beating in our hearts,

Miles and I continued on just like Meriwether Lewis and William Clark.
