Got up after a good nights sleep. Packed our stuff, then took a walk around the motel and took several photos.

Before leaving we decided to give our wedding bouquet to the owner and his wife for their hospitality.

Will definetely be staying here again.

Mr D'z Diner

Stopped by here to get a yummy breakfast. Food and service was great. It is an old 50's style diner and even the cooks and waitesses are dressed for the part.

Definitely worth a stop.
Kingman, Arizona

We didn't have much time today to spend in Kingman. All we did was walk around where the diner is and then headed over to the Powerhouse Museum. After that we started on our journey on route 66

Keepers of the Wild

We had planned on stopping here but sadly it was closed on this day, which is probably good as we most likely would run short on time if we had. Hopefully next time it won't be on a tuesday that we drive by.

Rest of Seligman

After lunch, we wandered down in Seligman and checked out the different stores and grabbed some more souvenirs. Stopped at Delgadillo's Sno Cap Drive in and got some delicious icecream. Enjoyed our time in Seligman, can see why some call it the birth place of Route 66. Time for us roll back out on to Route 66 and continue.

Old part of Route 66

While driving along Route 66 we saw an old road that was following by the side. Most likely the original route 66. We decided to stop and take some pictures of it.

Williams, Arizona

Arrived in Williams and went straight to the main street. Went up to Petes Gas Station to look and sadly it was closed. Not sure if it was closed for good or just getting restored. Didnt see any notice. Walked over to the Zipline and it was also closed. Bearizona was also closed at this time, so we ended up just walking around the main street and window shopping before we decided to head over to the hotel.
