True/False Film Festival Coming to Columbia, Missouri in February

Attention film buffs.  The seventh annual True/False Film Festival is coming February 25-28, 2010 to Columbia, MO just fifteen minutes east of Yates House Bed & Breakfast in Rocheport.  This documentary film festival lasts four days and turns five venues in downtown Columbia into a film utopia.  Included are documentary films freshly discovered at Sundance, Toronto and other film festivals.  Other films receive first showing at True/False.  The venues are wonderfully intimate and most showings are attended by film makers and participants.


Complete True/False Film Festival information is available.

American Bald Eagles Have Landed in Rocheport MO


Each year, we look forward to the return of American Bald Eagles to Rocheport.  They arrive with Winter and leave with Spring living along the banks of the Missouri River and fishing at the mouth of Moniteau Creek, a few hundred yards from the Yates House Bed and Breakfast


More of these beautiful winged creatures come every year.  Last winter, there were nearly fifty flying about and sitting in trees waiting for some unfortunate fish to rise near the river surface. 

Birders and photographers find it easy to get close enough for viewing and all sorts of excellent photo opportunities.  Naturally, binoculars and appropriate long lenses are suggested.

Make plans to stay at the Yates House Bed and Breakfast located in Rocheport, Missouri over these early months of 2010 for a fantastic bird watching experience!
