Sunday, March 16, Mobile AL
A slower paced day. A shorter posting.
After another great breakfast, we made Mass at a suburban Church where almost everybody was dressed up. A quick stop at Dunkin Donut and we were off to the Hank Williams museum. Since it is Sunday, our options were limited.
Hank Williams was an early country music star who died at age 29 on Jan. 1, 1953. This museum was put together by a long time fan and much of the material inside is on loan from others. We did not really know a lot about him and we spent about half an hour here. There are many old outfits, pictures, and record casings. Pleasant but not dramatic. No pictures allowed. He wrote over 200 songs in his short career, including “Hey,Good Lookin”, “Jambalaya”, “I Saw the Light”, and “Your Cheating Heart”.
So, it was on to Mobile where we are staying for three nights. We had rain this morning, it cleared up around noon, and then has been raining again in Mobile. Our three nights here are at Berney Fly B and B. The original home dates back to 1895. Luckily we are on the first floor.
Our inn keeper gave us details about the Mobile Mardi Gras which predates the one in New Orleans. I will leave those details for a later day after we visit the Mardi Gras museum here. However, I will give you a picture of the Mardi Gras tree located in the living room of the B and B. After January 6, the decorations change from Christmas to Mardi Gras.
Dinner was at Kitchen on George, excellent. I even tried the Jambalaya Shrimp Pasta and enjoyed it.
