Peter and I returned home last night from our ACFW/Vacation adventure, and I thought I would share a few pictures with you from the trip.
|The Czech/Slovak museum of Cedar Rapids, IA.|
|Looking up into the glass chandelier.|
|A Czech immigrant house typical of the 1880's|
Two rooms, 8 kids...yikes!
|U.S. Grant's home at White Haven.|
|Ulysses and Julia Grant. Quite a love story!|
|The more I learn about U.S. Grant, the more|
I admire him.
|I white-knuckled it across this narrow|
metal-decked bridge across the Ohio.
|So so so scared! Check out the grip I have on the steering wheel!|
|A fascinating and wonderful museum in Paducah, KY.|
|I got to play with Civil War era firearms!|
And...the tour guide was from Kansas! Bonus Points!
|This bed and quilt were rescued from a dilapidated KY cabin|
that had once belonged to a CSA soldier.
|The many flags of the confederacy.|
|Fort Donaldson monument to the dead who|
are buried on the battlefield in unmarked graves.
|The battlements of Fort Donaldson.|
|The Dover Hotel, where US Grant received the surrender|
of his longtime friend and West Point classmate
Simon Bolivar Buckner.
|Fancy woodwork in the Tennessee State Museum|
|The oldest Civil War monument...at Stones River in Murfreesboro, TN|
|Andrew Jackson statue at the Tenn. State Capitol|
|House Chamber in the Tenn. State Capitol|
|Seal of the State of Tennessee|
|The Capitol from the outside. Peter's verdict...Minnesota's|
is still the best. :D
|So, there's an exact replica of the Parthenon in Nashville.|
|With a super-ugly statue of Athena..gilded in real gold.|
|Replicas of the Elgin Marbles.|
|The Coffee Cups girls on Gala Night!|
|So this happened...A Bride for Bear was a finalist in the Carol Awards.|
|And A Palace on the Plains finaled, too.|
|And The Archaeologist's Find was a finalist.|
|And Bear Won!|
|And I got this pretty thing!|
|Messing about with luggage carts and tiny purses.|
|Diet Cherry Limeade. I wish Rochester had Sonic!|
