We were up in time to have breakfast at the hotel, although we stopped half way to the lobby to chat with other guests. The clouds overhead looked very dark and threatening and we all agreed that there was a good chance of rain today. A quick breakfast and we are off for the day. The first stop was right downtown in Monroeville. The Old Monroe County Courthouse is now a museum and during April and May of each year they use the courthouse and grounds in the same manner was used many years ago when Gregory Peck starred in the movie of the story by Nelle Harper Lee’s book "To Kill A Mockingbird". The two act play is presented daily and local actors have fun with the event. We were way too early to wait for the play, but we got a picture.
Rikard’s Mill was next stop and we got there a little early.
From there we went to Montgomery. Alabama to visit the Old Alabama Town area. It wasn’t something we could walk so we drove and saw some of the fabulous places all over the downtown area. We also took in another of the four driving tours of the city.
Then a few minutes in the Shakespeare Gardens to look at the small gardens area. Pretty!
Oh, by the way, although it was cloudy nearly all day, we only got very small smatterings of rain once or twice. Never had to turn on the windshield wipers.
