Art, Birds, Frogs, Riverboats and Flying Horses. And, Bridges.

Suzan and I spent a good portion of the weekend in Chattanooga, Tennessee. We sold our art at "Art Till Dark" there. Chattanooga is an interesting, entertaining and fun place to be. A couple of times each day, I wandered off and walked around the area. It wasn't as much of a wilderness as I'm used to walking about aimlessly in, but I did see a few animals and other wildlife. The first photos are some I took as I wandered around.


This is a Chattanooga bird. It reminds me of the ones back home.


Another bird. Looks like he's thinking of taking a swim in the Tennessee river.


One thing about Chattanooga is that the River winds it's way through the city and there are several bridges, some of which can be seen here. Note the bird from the previous picture still sitting there. He may be thinking of taking a ride on the Delta Queen.


Here's another shot of some of the bridges.


A closer shot of the RiverBoat.


I spotted a frog too.


and a horse.


and a cat. There must be a lot of animals there.


   This was the most exciting thing I saw. It's a flying horse. There's not too many of these left today. The rest of the photos are of our art work.







We had a fun weekend. We both look forward to returning to Chattanooga.

Oh wow Richard your pictures are wonderful. I love the photo of the Chatanooga bird - I never even knew there was such a bird, though I know the song about the Chatanooga Choo Choo lol. I don't think we have them here in the UK though. Your art collection is fab. I love your Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dum, I've just seen the new Alice in Wonderland film and I spotted them straight away. Wonderful shots. Love the steam boat too, I would so love a trip on one of those - they must really take you back to byegone days. Have a lovely week.

Thanks.

Dee - Are you reading the Sword of Truth series by Terry Goodkind?
Richard is the hero in those. Just wondered.
