TRIP TO SELMA, ALABAMA

Today was another beautiful day here in Alabama.
My husband and I decided to take a drive down
south to Selma, Alabama. The drive was very
enjoyable the trees are starting to turn their
beautiful colors. Pictured below are some of the
sights we took in while in the old part of the town
of Selma.

An old Victorian house

Another Victorian house. I just love the gingerbread
trim on these houses.


This old Victorian house was one of the prettiest
we saw.



Spanish moss was hanging from a lot of the trees.




This hotel is located near the Alabama river. The
iron work as you can see is very pretty.


This is a fountain that is in front of the St. James
Hotel.

This sounds like it would be a wonderful trip to take. I love to take drives around our state. The houses were so pretty. I also love the ginger bread on them.
