A day in Montgomery.
We enjoyed a day visiting museums in Montgomery.
The Museum of Alabama and Archives is a stunning example of quality construction. Huge columns across the front and back of the building. The floors, walls, and columns all Tennessee or Alabama granite and marble. The museum itself is extensive as it relates to Alabama. It can compete with any in the country for the quality and presentation. Very interactive and includes "Alabama Voices" which are recordings of people who had been slaves among others.
After 2 hours of exploring the museum we stopped by the “First White house of the Confederacy.” Preserved from the time of the Civil War as it would have been at that time. It was very interesting to see how the leadership lived during that time.
An interesting security system to alert on overly inquisitive visitors. Seems very familiar.

It was really great. I did not post my video of the museum. It was really long (big) and would take a while to upload. It took us over 2 hours to walk through but both of us agreed not to hurry our selves or each other. Even the building itself was amazing.

Retirement has been really good. We do need to not be in vacation mode every day. Some days we will not get up thinking "What do we go do today?" but instead just have a relaxing day. Love you.
