Cape Girardeau – 453 viewsMural seen on the sea wall near Kidd's Fuel dock in Cape Girardeau. While we were waiting to fuel, they were cleaning the area and a lot of folks in business attire were checking it out. Dave hollowed up and said "Too bad you guys don't have a way for boaters to tie up, we'd love to come into your town and have lunch".
