Traveling Tote Adventures
Welcome to another adventure of Tales of the Traveling Tote. This is where my fellow Tales of the Traveling Tote friends and I share our latest travels, projects and our most current events. You will have an opportunity to visit other members at the end of this post.
We traveled to the big apple again this past December to enjoy Christmas in New York with our family. You may remember some of these photos from another post but some you haven't seen.
It was fun experiencing the sights and sounds of Christmas agin, especially with family.
Miss Courtney enjoyed some
of the sites with us
My sweet son, daughter-in-law and grandson
Connor's first trip to NY
Jim and I were thrilled to enjoy dinner with Linda and her husband again this year. We met at Bar 65 at Rockefeller Center. It was delightful, and the view is amazing, who could tire of this! Linda blogs at More Fun Less Laundry but is presently taking a break.
Interesting and lovely decorations everywhere!
We enjoyed the Christmas Spectacular at Radio City Music Hall
Hmm, Christmas in NY two years in a row, maybe it's becoming a tradition for us.
What a great trip with my family!
We haven't been anywhere since NY so I thought I would ask you to come along for a walk with Miss Courtney and me. A favorite walking trail is near downtown. Winding beside the river mother nature provides a beautiful backdrop. But, on this day we'd just had a deluge of rain and the river is still swelling and rising.
Caution! Rising Water
Notice the park benches are already in the water
Some trees are budding out around town but not yet here.
Tulips are blooming
Miss Courtney is enjoying a beautiful sunshiny day
Miss Courtney plans to come here for a picnic soon. I will look forward to that!
After so much rain the river looks really muddy
This is the area where the path ends. There is an amphitheater here for concerts, a popular place all year. A great fireworks show on the Fourth.
Capital Park-Historic Site
Only a few blocks from shops and businesses and major traffic congestion you will find this little sanctuary. Peaceful and a lovely place to relax or take a walk. This is the site where Tuscaloosa served as the State Capital of the state from 1826 to 1846. It was relocated to Montgomery in 1847. The building was later used as home to Alabama Central Female College for ninety-nine years. In 1923 the historic building burned to the ground.
This site is often used for weddings and wedding portraits
The old Capital Building
Thank you for your visit, I hope you will leave a comment, it's the only way I know you stopped in.

This is where Miss Courtney and I will be soon. Nothing like sand under my feet and the sound of waves crashing on the beach for a relaxing getaway.
