A Place Time Forgot
On the drive back from Memphis, we stopped in this little “town” where the buildings and fixtures dated back to the early 1900’s. Though many of the buildings were closed due to Covid, the courthouse has open for tours.
Standing in the main court room I could visualize the trial from To Kill a Mocking Bird. The judge’s bench was ominous and the jury seats uncomfortable. It was clear there was no expectation of a long trial in this court room, where everyone probably knew each other all too well.
Do you remember phones like this?
I laughed when I saw this phone. I can’t imagine what it must look like to a millenial or Gen Z. But there it sat in the hallway just outside the court room.

The bus and train are quick, but neither gives the view of the city you get from the ferry. As you zip across the river the city gets closer and closer.
On this trip we found Shakespeare/s Garden, tucked on the lower level of the park, it is filled with the flowers common in his plays.
The waterfall reminded me of some of the gardens we saw in Japan a decade ago
There are hundreds of varieties of Iris and I love them all.
