Savannah, GA ~ I'm playing catch up

In February I flew to Savannah, to attend and volunteer at Quiltcon, the Modern Quilt Guild's convention.  The MQG is a non-profit, so they basically run on volunteers.  Last year I volunteered in Pasadena and I had so much fun that I decided to do it again this year.

Of course I scheduled extra time to see the city.  I hadn't been in Savannah since I was a young girl, so it was really all "new to me".  Here are some of the photos I took of the city.

There were many cobblestone and brick streets.  Sometimes walking was a challenge!

The convention center was on an island.  There was one hotel on the island, but most of us stayed on the "mainland".  That way we were close to all the restruants and shops.  We took the free ferry over the the convention center everyday.

One of the unique shops on the waterfront; I couldn't resist snapping a photo with Bob's name in it!

Savannah has many statues commemorating its varied history.

The moss on the trees was picturesque.

The Vietnam Memorial was very moving.

This is City Hall, the dome is visable all around town.

Another wonderful commemorative statue.

Thanks for stopping by and sharing my life with me,
