Backroads Tour
Day 9
The Yellowhammer State

Lots of road today as we drive into a bright, rising sun, heading East.

I've got a few things I want to see in Montgomery but it'll be just drive-by shootings as it's Sunday and everything is closed. I mean EVERYTHING. More on that later.

Montgomery has no traffic so we quickly find our way to the Civil Rights Memorial

and then the First White House of the Confederacy.

The Hank Williams Memorial was on our list and we ran into a little luck as we were approaching Montgomery when we came across his boyhood home in Georgiana, AL.

Only a short distance away his resting place.

We were told we couldn't buy beer or alcohol in Alabama on a Sunday but that didn't worry us because we were staying in Georgia this evening. I wasn't aware they had the same antiquated blue-laws still in place. What I did find peculiar was that you could buy pornography and hash-pipes, just not beer. Gotta wonder how the Churches missed that one.
