During our visit with Tara and Jim we enjoyed their southern hospitality and fine meals, both in restaurants and home-cooked. We had dinner at Vintage Year – tuna and beef cheeks! Breakfast included a new treat – avocado toast. Tara Cady is a talented artist and gave us a tour of her studios, where she practices and teaches pottery, printmaking, glasswork, and painting, and related arts. The studios are located at the back of an older home that she is renovating in accordance with historic zoning restrictions.
We also visited the Montgomery Museum of Fine Arts where Tara was Director of Children’s Exhibitions. She saw the children’s wing through its original creation and also an expansion that doubled the space. It is a colorful, fun, and busy space. Her legacy is admirable and awesome.
Tara and Judy saw the movie Just Mercy while Doug and Jim monitored the football playoff games. Do see the movie if you have a chance. Jim prepared a delicious fried chicken and greens dinner and we ate chocolate and caramel cake – yum!
