I love to travel.
Every few years we spring for a big vacation, but on the in-between years, we will take short jaunts over a long weekend just to get away. Recently I decided that our long weekend trips would be spent exploring Alabama. Every nook and cranny. Mr. Menace (Dennis the) was born right here and has lived here all his 63 years, but there are many interesting places that he has never seen.
So, it is my mission to see all 4 corners of this great state.
I know Alabama has a bad reputation and much of it is probably deserved (insert politics here), but as a scenic state, there is none more beautiful! It is my goal to prove this to the rest of the world.
Our anniversary is May 30, which often coincides with Memorial Day weekend. I usually select this weekend for one of our trips. Last year, we went to the north eastern part of Alabama to Mentone.
We stayed at a B&B called Mentone Inn which was built in the 1920’s. I got this picture from their website.
Just a short walk from our B&B was Brow Park on top of Lookout Mountain. Beautiful views!
It clouded up and we did not get to see the sunset but dusk was beautiful anyway.
Just a block or two from our B&B was the Wildflower Cafe, which we frequented for supper. We can highly recommend the Wildflower Crepes and the Triple layer Carrot Cake.
We thoroughly enjoyed a relaxing weekend of Alabama beauty.
