Elizabeth and Alan's Saturday Adventure

Today Alan and I went on an adventure that we wouldn't have had without my TravelScoot -- we went to the Louisiana Arts and Science Museum. It is housed in an old train station that's just beautifully redone. We were able to parallel park on the street in front of the museum, and there was a handicap ramp that my scoot handled beautifully. (If it hadn't been there we would have carried the scoot up a few steps.) I rolled on a brick sidewalk to the door with no problem.

Once inside we were treated to a collection of sculptures by Croatian sculptor Ivan Mestrovic, an ancient Egypt gallery (complete with a c. 300 BC mummy), a few sculptures by Frank Hayden, an exhibit of historical celestial maps, and an incredible collection of a century of women's purses, including twenty five Judith Leiber designs. In the picture I'm in front of a case of the Leiber handbags. I used the Think King cup holder to carry my camera.

Afterwards we had pizza at Fleur de Lis, a Baton Rouge landmark that has been around since the 1940s, and did some grocery shopping at a store I haven't been in in years.

It was a wonderful day.


  1. Sounds like a great day and those Leiber handbags are so pretty.

  2. Elizabeth,

    What are the black straps over your handlebar in this photo?

    I'm looking forward to being able to go to museums again!


  3. Anne, the straps are my purse. I have one with long handles so the purse sits in the triangle, and I can easily pull it up by the straps.
