Éva and I have started our journey. Here I sit at a coffee shop in Savannah having the most incredibly difficult time believing we only left yesterday morning. It hasn’t even been 48 hours. I don’t know. Weird.
Anyway, as I said, we left Asheville yesterday morning and after encountering this rather bizarre sight on the road and about four and a half hours later, we were in Atlanta, Georgia.
Our first sighting:
Here’s the capitol building (I think), but I never got a closer look.
And new juxtaposed against the old.
Here’s Éva at the Carnegie Monument….
….and a whole lot of random, weird stuff:
…..Cinderella’s coachman texting someone on his cell phone….
She thought this mural may contain the names of all the artists who have paintings in the area.
It was a long day of driving then walking over a huge area of this city. We finally made it back to the van intending to stay the night there, but still had a little energy left to drive a bit further. We didn’t want to have to deal with Monday morning traffic so we drove to Macon and stayed there the night. This morning we drove to Savannah – wow what a beautiful city – and then out to the beach. Neither of us had ever been to the Atlantic Ocean before, so it was pretty exciting…..and WARM!!! Being Californians, we’re used to the icy Pacific. It was like swimming in bath water. Really nice.
So, after our day at the beach, we’re back in Savannah where we’ll spend the night. Tomorrow we’ll go back to the old part of town to enjoy the sights, then move on. Pictures coming soon. (:
