The Outing Part 3: History 1

Deb had taken me to the Historic District of Huntsville for our stroll in the park and pizza so just after lunch we drove a block or two to Constitution Village that brings you back to the early 1800's. We thought about taking a tour inside but the $10.00 entrance fee was a little much after our specialty pizza and wine!Instead we just enjoyed the architecture from the outside and found it was aesthetically pleasing enough.Our next stop, a blast from Debi's past!

That was neat - I'd say you saved 10.00 and had fun anyway ;-) Funny to see a big set of shutters flanking a front door - that never caught on ;-)

Looks very English Evie.
Lots of interesting angles as well. (Umm! How much wine did you drink.?)
No seriously, they are very interesting images.

Everything does look a little tipsy doesn't it Roy!!! Just to let you know...this usually happens whether I've had a little glass of wine or not!! hahaha!!

Nice series of photos Eve. Of course of love these kinds of scenes...little snippets around the neighborhood. It seems to capture the essence of an area. I like the combination of brick and picket in the second one. The fencing and the bricks compliment one another.

I echo Roy's comments. That could soooooooooo easily be somewhere in England (except for those door shutters), specially that first photo. I shan't mention the interesting camera angles! (-;

Are the door shutters a common feature down there? I've never seen them on doors before.

A girl can only spend so much! Glad you took in the scenery and enjoyed what historic value you were able to view.

Is it warm down there, Eve?

Eve said...

Thanks Barb I thought those shutters were odd too.
Thanks Kari!
Jenny glad it made you think of home.
Thanks Steve, I'll have to ask around about the shutters. That was something I'd not seen either.
Hi Sharon! Yes it's warm, finally! I got a bit of a sun burn on my forearms from riding the motorcycle the past two days!

Eve, the last shot looks like it could be Oregon with the moss! I really like your header image too!

Eve, all the brick. Very cool. I love the first shot and the one of the shuttered door with the little transom window above.

Nice set, I like the fence photos. It looks like a cool place

Such a fun time we had!!! Ya know, I was THERE and didn't even notice the door shutters. Kinda silly, those, when you think about it. I'd blame the wine on my inability to notice such things but they didn't give us enough, imho - LOL!

Lovely tour! You approach history like I do...sort of absorb it by what I see rather then listening to guided tours and learning all the facts.
