It was only fitting that, after perhaps being a little too liberal with the area that I decided to call a parking spot when seeing the cake at the Shrine of St. Rose Philippine Duchesne, the next cake stop on our historical journey was at the St. Charles Old County Courthouse.
And of course, as this was an excursion for Miles James and I of the most exciting kind, we pulled up to the building of the courthouse only to find that the cake was no where in sight. So-after finding a more proper parking spot- we found ourselves at the bottom of a series of momentous steps that we could only hope would lead us to the cake.
As we conquered each step, I started to realize that since most of the courthouse is still composed of the very same pieces it was built with, Miles and I really were walking through a piece of history on the very same steps that the individuals who created the courthouse took themselves.
Finally after making it to the top of the steps and walking out onto a small plateau, we could not only see the cake, but we had a pretty majestic view of the rest of St. Charles including the other locations we had only recently made a part of our cake hunting history.
Although we had already had a long, historical day, Miles and I only paused for a moment to take in the view and soak up all the history we could before turning back down the same steps we had just climbed to head toward the last cake on our historical adventure through St. Charles.
