From Panama City, Florida, we headed north into Alabama. We are on our way to a rally in western North Carolina but we detoured slightly to visit our niece in college near Birmingham, Alabama. She is from the Indianapolis area so not a lot of people beyond her immediate family has the opportunity to visit her. We hadn’t been in that area in her years there.
She attends Samford University and is in the final year of their nursing program. She gave us a tour of the campus. It is a very hilly and treed area. The campus is self -contained which has allowed the architecture to be kept consistent. The university has been endowed by a number of benefactors including this rather stiff one shown with Karen.
We enjoyed a dinner out, eating what else than southern BBQ. It was very nice to be able to visit and hopefully we were on our way before we wore out our welcome.
