- Man thought we had discount tickets, but a search of Tana and Big Butt failed to produce them.
- The weather was supposed to be sunny and warm, it started out extremely foggy and just a little coolish.
- We had intended to ride the Fort Morgan ferry to Dauphin Island and drive back in the evening via Mobile. The ferry sign (30 minutes FROM the ferry, saves you from driving all the way down to Fort Morgan if there is no ferry service) stated it was CLOSED, so we reversed the trip driving plans.
- I had the Baby HP tablet computer, wanted to use Streets & Trips and the GPS, so I grabbed her and tried to start her up with the button (vs the little remote I use most of the time). Baby refused to start with the lid up. Despite several tries, she was having none of it. So, I say to Man, with that snide black humor tone of voice, wonder if she will boot up with her lid closed. Guess what, she did. Surprised us.
Now, to share with you some photos that did not appear in my other posts, I hope you enjoy them.
Above, isn't this enchanting? Water, plants, stonework,
and if you look in the far lower right corner, a gold fish!
This un-identified little beauty, we believe is a bulb,
was in the gardens along the walk ways
that are replanted several times a year.
Man and I on the board walk in the Oriental-American garden.
Mirror Lake as viewed through the branches of a live oak.
Above, a view of a greenhouse. The structure through which we are viewing is a bridge (we believe it is used for maintenance vehicles?) This has a lot of features I just love, stone, wraught iron, greenhouses, ivy growing up the columns, a bench.
Above, Man and I at the end of our wonderful day, walking through a stand of Bamboo, tired, fullfilled, with so many wonderful photos and memories. (Thanks to Donna for this photo.) We may look like we are fading out, but the day will remain focused for some time.
