Wow Chattanooga!

Hold on tight!
First stop yesterday was to the Museum of Recovery and Towing. Chattanooga is the home of Holmes towing, it is where the crane tow truck was invented in 1913.

Here is our favorite truck in the collection.

After Rich had plenty of time to look around while I played with the pocket frogs on my iPad.
Then we headed back downtown to the hotel, parked the car and took off on foot, many of the attractions are very close.
Our next stop was to sign up for the 2pm Duck Tour.

Rich lives military vehicles and has been wanting to one of these for years.

This was the view before splashdown!

Captain Barry was a great funny tour guide. He had lots if stories about Chattanooga and was very funny!

Here is a view of the aquarium from the water. I think this is where we are headed today.

So after the Duck tour we stopped here...

This is a Key West and a s'mores
cupcake. It is very bad that this place is a block from the hotel.

This is a couple of blocks from the hotel too. AT&T field, home of the Chattanooga Lookouts. What better on a summer evening than to go to a ballgame?

So we had an action packed day. There are many more things for us to do and see. What will today bring?

Maybe a little more stitching? Or not!

I hope you all have a great Thursday. I will catch up on my blog reading and comments when I get home.
