Bottle Tree To Bank Vault

Tuesday, August 23, 2016

There was a musical event in Natchez that we attended at Temple B'nai Israel. BI is one of my favorite buildings -- the synagogue was dedicated in 1872, and while I've been there for daytime HH services, this was our first visit at night in a long time.

The ark:

Always love coming here, and it feels so good to see these pews so full from people all over the community.

Afterwards, we stayed at the Natchez Hampton Inn (just like every other Hampton Inn ever).

The next day, we did some things in nearby Port Gibson, and were so happy to see this bottle tree by our friend Stephanie Dwyer:

We checked on the former Gemiluth Chessed in Port Gibson, built in 1892. It hasn't been a synagogue for many years now. We'll be going back inside it in October;

Lunch was at the Old Country Store

We've been coming here every couple of years since before Mr D owned it -- it's always been littered in the back with business cards and even more so now

It's an interesting mix, from Sabrett New York hotdogs

to religious tracts

for whatever reason, I think this once we were here on an off day (and Mr D has this restaurant open seven days a week, it's bound to happen, I guess)

my watermelon eater was happy, though

Our last visit in 2013 gives a better look at how the space is arranged

That afternoon, we went antiquing in Woodville and I got a small Good Earth pottery platter at Main Street Market, and found this at another antique shop in town. Jitney Jungle

Later on, we visited Temple Sinai in St Francisville

and went shopping down the block at Grandmother's Buttons (they have a newer location on Magazine St in NOLA) jewelry shop, which is housed in a former bank

the shop has its own button museum in the bank vault
