Saturday Evening Walk in Midtown Mobile

Today wasn't an overly-productive day in our house (unless you consider brunch, nap, and puppy snuggling productive) so we decided to take a little stroll tonight before heading to dinner at a local wine bar. I decided that it would be a great chance to post a few pics of Midtown Mobile, since many times I take for granted the beauty and history this area holds. 


The area where we live is considered the historic district and has some really beautiful homes with intricate woodworking, interesting architecture, and unique layouts that you don't find in homes built today. Every time I pass this one...I'm tempted to knock on the door and ask to see the inside!


Many of the houses are marked with the historical shield which indicates that the home has been certified by the Mobile Historic Development Commission.


Others, while maybe not historical, remain decked out in the spirit of the season!


Even in the middle of January, the trees and flowers are blooming.



There are a number of tour markers on the sidewalks that indicate where important events happened or a historical landmarks are located. We live near marker 29 (I'm not sure what tour it's for) which is the Duffie Oak, the oldest landmark in Mobile....it has its own Wikipedia page for goodness sake!


Home sweet home :)
