Sites and Sounds in Historich Savannah

I took a bus trip with my mom and my friend Julanda. Her mother is wonderful at creating these nice little day trip get aways. So we, along with about 50 other people, piled onto the bus at 6:30 am and away we went. We got to Savannah and of course we had to eat at Paula Deans again. I like her restaurant but I think I am good so I will be trying some new cuisine the next time.

I had a chance to relax and enjoy the sites and sounds of the city. We took a tour and I had a chance to go to a art museum. Laura Dinello's work is fantastic!!! I recommend you check her out if you get the chance. I also got some wonderful Praline cookies and just sat back and people watched. So here are a few of my pictures from Savannah and oh yeah it was Memorial Day weekend. A big shout out of Thank you to all past and future Veterans who fight for our liberty!

Until next time enjoy!

People everywhere enjoying the sites and sounds of this charming southern city.

Cobblestone pavement made by slaves. Slaves were bought and sold on these very stones.

African American Family Monument
The base is inscribed with these words:

We were stolen, sold and bought together from the African continents. We got on the slave ships together. We lay back to belly in the holds of the slave ships in each other excrement and urine together sometimes died together and our lifeless bodies thrown overboard together. Today we are standing up together with faith and even some joy.
