Alabama Wedding, Part Five

May 7-15 With the nuptials to attend later in the day, we figured we’d do some sightseeing in the morning followed up by a hike, then return to the house to relax and clean up before heading to the wedding. Our first stop on the way to Fort Morgan, our focus for the morning, was […]

Alabama Wedding, Part Three

May 7-15 Back on Beale Street, we stopped midway down the block (almost all the action occurs in just one block) at King’s Bar, a place we’d seen in one of our prior visits, that has a patio between two buildings that features a stage. The purchase of a Hurricane, and later a big ass […]

West Coast Spring 2017, Part Four

Philadelphia, Part Five

  Timeline: March 18-27 Determined to see several sights our last day in Philadelphia, we were out early on our way to the first stop of the day, the Mutter Museum.  Diligent sightseeing requires adequate sustenance though and so we dropped by Miel Patisserie for a late breakfast.  We opted for the Le Parisien, Ham, […]
