Train ride

Posted on 6:03 AM by jr cline | 0 comments

Early Thursday morning  Christy, Jeremy, and I headed off to the Amtrak station in Anniston, Alabama.
    
 
It is a quaint little station built in 1925.
    
 Our toys entertained us.
But waiting can be a boring game
 
  and you know what happens when creative people get bored.
   
 We play!

Eventually we boarded the train..
    
 
 The train stopped at several other stations along the way. 
     And a couple of times they let us get off and stretch our legs.
Getting off and walking around was a fun change of pace.
  
 After about 9 hours on the train and a short taxi ride we arrived at
 the 905 Royal Hotel located in New Orleans' French Quarter.
  
  Pretty much we went to our rooms, unpacked, and went to bed.
I will definitely be taking the train again.  It was much better than driving
and only took about an hour longer.

Here is a tramp who stands and gazes;
And here is the green for stringing the daisies!
Here is a cart runaway in the road
Lumping along with man and load;
And here is a mill, and there is a river:
Each a glimpse and gone forever!
