Alabama Shakespeare Festival

For one glorious night, Daddy J and I left Big S and Little S with their aunt and we drove 3 hours to Montgomery for the Alabama Shakespeare Festival. As an English teacher, I have always enjoyed watching plays come alive. We saw Three Musketeers and enjoyed it thoroughly. The actors were all great and the costumes were amazing. The grounds are beautiful. There is a huge park where you can enjoy a nice picnic lunch. I love this fountain in front of the theater. The water seems to disappear! The featured plays right now are Comedy of Errors, Othello, Three Musketeers, Misalliance, and Beehive.

On our way to the Shakespeare Festival, one of our favorite places to stop is Priester's Pecans. It is at just the right place for a restroom break. The restrooms are clean, the shop has lots of great trinkets and Bama/Auburn goods, and the pecans are fantastic! I love the Pecan Divinity and the Praline Pecans.

What a beautiful festival. I was in Stratford Upon Avon, the place that Shakespeare was thought to be born, no one really knows because every place wants a piece of him:)
HOwever, they didn't have any costumes like that anywhere displayed there.

Photo Friday - Guatemala Zoo will surprise you!

I love Shakespeare Festivals. San Rafael and Santa Cruz have beautiful outdoor ones if you are on the West Coast.
