We just met Sharon and John here at Red Bay. They are from New York and had just gotten a 2011 Phaeton at Lazy Days in Florida.

We found out that Helen Keller's home was in Tuscumbia, 35 miles away. On the weekends in June they put on the play the Miracle Worker, the story about Anne Sullivan opening the world of communication to 7 year old Helen Keller. So we all got tickets to go on Friday night.When we called for tickets they recommended we eat at Frank's Italian restaurant. It was really cute and the food was delicious.

Birth place of Helen Keller.

The pump where Helen finally realized the letters Anne was spelling into her hand meant the object and opened the world of language to her.

The home contains much of the original furniture.

Helen at at seven.

Annie Sullivan's and Helen's bedroom.

The drama was put on outside behind the home. It was an excellent performance. The girl who portrayed Helen did a terrific job, along with the actress who played Annie Sullivan. They were really demanding parts. It was a very hot, humid night and it must of taken a lot out of them. I would recommend going to it if you are in this area in June or July. It only cost $10 a ticket for admission to the house and play. What a deal!
