Nominal Me

I'm falling in love with my camera and taking photos everywhere I go. That, combined with my passions for politics, sports, religion and other things we all agree on, makes this blog persist.

Davenport, IA

After leaving Chicago, I arrived in Davenport, IA, one of the Quad Cities. The term "Quad Cities" is a misnomer, as the metropolitan area includes five cities in Iowa and Illinois (Davenport, IA, Bettendorf, IA, Rock Island, IL, East Moline, IL, and Moline, IL). It is a vibrant community with shops, restaurants, and entertainment and many described it as a "great place to raise a family".

I was here for the Davenport Air Show, which I will write about in my next post.

Davenport, IA is the home of the Machine Shed, a fantastic farmer's restaurant.

Outside, there are tractors that kids can play with.

Here's me pimpin my ride!

They offer hay rides as well.

Inside, the decor is one of a family farm store. The portions are big and the food is great.

Davenport boasted some of the most beautiful sundowns I've ever seen. It was a nice place with extremely friendly people. If you're driving through the area, I strongly suggest you stop by for a visit.
