This morning, we journeyed down to Shady Acres Campground in Mobile, AL. Once we were settled in, we drove the car out to Bellingrath Home and Gardens in Theodore, AL (see www.bellingrath.org). This beautiful home and garden was built by an executive of Coca-Cola. They lived quite well indeed. We took a guided tour of the house which was loaded with some awesome antiques and more porcelain figurines than we ever imagined could exist. The gardens were stunning even if we missed the peak of the Spring blooms by about a week.
