Return Tickets

“We take photos as a return ticket to a moment otherwise gone.”

I’d posted a few days ago about the half marathon Drew and I completed in Savannah last weekend, but I didn’t post the other scenes from my Southern adventure. If photos are indeed a return ticket to past adventures, I’m sure glad to have these. Because Savannah is lovely.

I stayed in historic downtown and ventured down to the Riverfront.

One day of wandering brought a stop to the Telfair Museum — one of the best impulse stops I’ve had. I got to see the original Bird Girl, made famous by the cover of “Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil.”

On exhibit was “Khalil Gibran and the Feminine Divine,”

as well as “Rodin: the Human Experience.”

These hands were created by area fourth graders whose schools collaborated with the museum to learn about Rodin and his technique. And the Rodin exhibit, I might add, was stunning. Just amazing.

This was a random prism was cast on the floor as the light went through the protective glass of a piece. Loved it.

It was so fun to just stroll around the area, looking at the architecture. So many little things to be seen.

This was something we spotted within a mile of the airport. Made me laugh. If you buddied it up with the Wienermobile, you’d be set with ballgame snacks.

I hope I can return to Savannah and have more adventures. There’s still so much I’ve not seen.  But I have some great return tickets for now.
