Did you ever think you'd see Amelia Earhart's pilot's license? I didn't either! But I found myself looking at it in a display case in an exhibition called "One Life: Amelia Earhart" at the National Portrait Gallery in Washington, D.C.
Do you remember when I visited a Chautauqua on the southern shore of Lake Erie a few years ago and had lunch at the historic Lakeside Hotel? I remember learning that Amelia Earhart had been one of their famous guests.
While I wandered through the exhibit, I kept thinking about my afternoon at the Lakeside Hotel (it was a beautiful day with bright blue sky) while I looked at the images and keepsakes of Amelia's life. I wondered at what point in this exhibit could you place a marker that said "visited Lakeside, Ohio."
I was expecting to spend an afternoon with portraits of presidents, but found myself captivated by the Amelia Earhart exhibit. I love when I have the time to enjoy a museum, and wander. Would this exhibit bring you delight?
