These are a few of my favorite things

photo of English Rose Tea Room

To Do! That's what the 50th
birthday celebration in Chattanooga
was. Jeannette, the birthday girl,
had the days and food
all planned out. Saturday: used book
store, English Tea Room in the early
afternoon, walk to the Hunter Museum
back to freshen up and a glass of wine ,
then dinner at St. John's Meeting Place.
I had quail.
Quail on a bed of gouda grits. Quail
stuffed with mushrooms, zucchini and
wrapped in bacon. It was the Supper of
the Lamb for sure! A feast.

I only knew Jeannette. We stayed eating
from 6:30 until almost 10:00 eating
that night. The banquet: God's people ]
and God's food! Her other 3 friends were
a feast too!

Quite interesting mixture of modern
and traditional at the Hunter Museum.
The walk over the street traffic was
a bit scary to those
who don't like heights! Me! It is clear
in the daytime.

You've never had an art experience like this.

Perched on an 80-foot bluff on the edge of the Tennessee River, the Hunter Museum of American Art offers stunning views of the river and the surrounding mountains. This panorama is equaled only by the exceptional collection of American art inside recognized as one of the country's finest.

I would love to see it. What a great idea to have the outside and inside be beautiful; the perfect balance.

Did you walk across the bridge over the river to the other side and the big park and street with fun shops? I do looooove Chattanooga. I saw that little tea shop last time I was there and plan to go there next time I take Thomas.

Your time there sounded wonderful.
