Today we (Mom and I) went to the City Market in Savannah. We had dessert (bread pudding) for breakfast at Goosefeathers Café, and then we walked around an art fair sponsored by the Telfair Museum. We picked out some interesting homemade pottery and jewelry for early Christmas gifts and looked at several art and photography booths.
Then, we got back on the road. We (everyone) ate at a small restaurant in Macon, Georgia by the name of Market City Café. I had a grilled two-cheese sandwich. It was good and I would recommend it to everyone who is in the area or is close by.
It’s also worth noting that Otis Redding, who sang Sitting on the Dock of the Bay, is from Macon, Georgia. They have a statue of him near the river, with a dock nearby.
The second Place and the last place that we went to is the Vulcan Statue in Birmingham, Alabama. It was chilly and a little bit windy, but not as bad as last January. It did not seem as bad except when you look over the rails (which I didn’t). The Vulcan is 56 feet tall, and on top of the 124-foot base, he’s over 180 feet in the air.
For the rest of the evening, on our way to the different towns, we watched the movie “In the Garden of Good and Evil” which Will had the foresight to bring along. I really enjoyed it but I thought it is probably an even better book.
