Travel Notes From a Southern Poetry Tour

Last Day

Last Day - Chattanooga

Our last day in Tennessee, we went to the Tennessee Valley Railroad and rode an old steam train. I wasn’t sure if it would be awesome or lame but it was actually REALLY exciting. It was so fun to see kids getting really excited about it, but also just fun. The turntable was my favorite part. I didn’t realize that’s how trains turn around. It was really exciting and apparently, back in the day, it took 4 men.

I loved it.

We then had lunch in downtown Chattanooga and had ice cream at Clumpies (so good)

The downtown is adorable. They had this like water walk for kids, and the Chattanooga Choo Choo song was solded into the sidewalk. Really cool

We then drove back to atlanta and flew home from there.

I’m home now and so thankful for such a fun trip and a great book tour for Don Dreams And I Dream.

I was happy to have such a great turnout at the four readings, and happy to meet local poets and hear them read. I had a great time w Anna, Ellen,& Amber.

Anna and I were really lucky. Every little whim we took, turned into a great adventire…

It was just great, and I loved all the cities and towns we visited down south.

I have my favorites, but not writing them.

So thankful for it all….
