These are the most pampered ducks in the world. :)
After we left the hotel, we stopped by the Brooks Museum to see the William Christenberry exhibit. He has been taking photos in rural Alabama since the '60s, and it's amazing to study them. They made me grateful for our Southern heritage. There is so much soul and beauty in the South.
After that, we went to the lovely Victorian Village for a tour of the Woodruff-Fontaine house. You should go see it today. The architecture is truly breathtaking, and you'll help ensure that it stays open for future generations to enjoy.
For a late lunch, we headed back to Midtown to one of our favorites, Cafe Ole.
Finally, we decided to go on a little scavenger hunt. We had heard about the amazing Galloway house that used to be in our neighborhood (it burned), and when we saw this old picture of "The Galloway House, Memphis, Tennessee" at the Peabody, we thought we had found it. I googled the Galloway house, and I found the exact picture and a Midtown address.
After a little driving around the Evergreen District (again), we found the house! I was so glad to see the beautiful home was in great condition and that it appears to be well-loved.
The whole weekend reminded me about all the beauty in this city. It is pretty hard to see sometimes, but it's there.
