We enjoyed a few days of culture in Huntsville, Alabama after we left Bushranger. The culture was varied, entertaining and most enjoyably a hoot!
Gregg and Carol graciously hosted us and chauffeured us from Iuka, Mississippi to their home in Alabama.
En route we explored the Coon Dog Cemetery (in banjo playing territory – way, way off the beaten track).
We trod the pavements of the historic part of Huntsville, including an old-time hardware store with the most amazing old-time wares. We passed the buildings where Tallulah Bankhead was born, where presidents dined, where history oozed. We strolled through the delightful Hunts Park, complete with a beautiful creek/canal running through the middle and home to large sized carp. We toured Twickenham area – old south antebellum architecture.
We ate lunch in the antebellum building at the entrance of the Huntsville Botanical Gardens, enjoying the bucolic scenery.
We dined alfresco at the Turner’s, in their enchanting garden and terrace, complete with snake in cat’s mouth, turtles, and birds – robins, cardinals and yellow finches.
And yesterday, Claire drove down from Franklin, Tennessee with the kids to join us at the Huntsville Space and Rocket Centre. We had a blast!
Signing off until next time…
Such is life!
