HolaHolaHola Beautifuls!

So another full day of activities were planned for us, and Babushka's beginning to understand why she so loves living UpNorthInTheSouth.  They eat as much as Cubanos!!  Es mas, I'd say for breakfast they even beat us.  De veras.  Don't think that's possible?  Look at this menu- a whole side dedicated to desayuno. AND ALL OF IT GOOD!!!  No wonder they have more than one location.

One of the treasures of Tallahassee, The LeMoyne Center for Visual Arts was founded in 1963 to be a gallery of fine arts and to be a place for art education activities in North Florida.  Turns out, it's one of the top 100 art festivals in the nation! Housed in an 1854 Antebellum home, it houses a gallery, sculpture garden, and year long art classes.  PLUS members of BB's beloved TWAM have portrayed Jacques LeMoyne, the artist the center is named after. On the day we visited we enjoyed the "Side By Side" exhibit by Debby and Randy Brienen.

Listen to museum Director Ann Kozeliski as she shares the history and the current activities the center has, and how it's goal is "to get art into the hands of the people". The growing popularity and fama LeMoyne is having attests that they're doing it right!

Recognize the place in the painting?  Wakulla Spgs Lodge, de BB's home town.


And then Beautifuls, then came THIS.

That was Babushka's reaction when they said we were going to go on a Segway.
 To which BB said, "No way!"

Pero you know that's blah,blah, because Babushka will try anything once, twice to make sure...
but a little convincing did have to happen...



Some instruction via Tim Nettles, owner of Tallahassee Segway Tours gives a demo to calm our nerves.  The plan was to start at Cascades Park, then go to the Smokey Hollow Commemoration.


So... Did BB actually learn to ride a Segway??



Not only did she ride it Beautifuls, but was zipping all through Tallahassee turning heads!  This was one of the best tours, because not only did we see sights, we were quite the sight ourselves.  We covered a lot of ground in an hour. The Capitol, Railroad Square, College Town, and many other points of interest, all with fascinating facts shared by third generation Tallahassee Tim.  

Though it isn't strenuous, Babushka will stress that it's strictly a straight standing stance and you will feel it once you dismount. Would BB ride a Segway again?  JU SO FONII!!!  She's looking forward to it and is even organizing a publicity tour for TWAM on Segways.  They're fun, "get you around town" attention getters that everyone should try at least once.
