Using bridges, I had crossed the Mississippi several times. This time I wanted to do something different. I looked to see if there was a ferry crossing, and there was. The
Dorena-Hickman Toll Ferry is one of the few remaining riverboat ferries in the United States and
the only operating ferry crossing the Mississippi River between Missouri
After crossing the Mississippi, I spent the night in Sikeston, Mo. I couldn't help but remember that one of the three Lambert's (home of the throwed rolls) is located in Sikeston. I had stopped at the one in Foley, Alabama a year ago, and the food was wonderful. It just wasn't gonna happen tonight though. I had a late lunch at Patti's 1880 a short time ago, and I couldn't, maybe next time.
