Exploring Creve Coeur on my day off

After riding my bike today, I drove around exploring Creve Coeur, IL, a town across the river from Peoria. I ended up meeting some guys tossing a football around in the middle of a street. They told me they play on the Pekin Vikings, an 8FL (EightMan Football League) team, which was established to have a league play during semi-professional offseason. I stuck around for a little bit then drove around taking pictures in Creve Coeur before the sun set.
