Field Trips and Fun in Coastal GA

Thought I would catch you all up on a few of our latest adventures. We’ve been pretty busy exploring and enjoying all that Savannah has to offer. So, in the interest of brevity I’ll only include a few photos from each, but if you are my Facebook friend then you can see lots more. 🙂

Savannah always has something going on – some free day or museum or special event. There truly is no shortage of interesting things to do here.

Free Museum Day

Recently, we took advantage of the free day for museums that the Smithsonian network was hosting. We chose to visit the Mighty 8th Air Force Museum.

Now, I’ve been to a LOT of Air Force museums – some bigger and some smaller than the Mighty 8th. Truly this was a case of not judging the proverbial book by its cover. That small, unassuming building is really well laid out and offers some high quality exhibits.

Here are a few pics from the day:

Picnic in the Park

Next up we spent an evening in Forsyth Park enjoying some Jazz and a tribute to Johnny Mercer. The place was crowded but it was so worth it. Next time, I’m getting there earlier, bringing my bug spray, and settling in for the day!

Some of the picnic settings – complete with tables and linens, candles, and flower arrangements.

I’m going to make this a two-part entry. Next up … Tybee Pirate Parade, Savannah Riverboat Cruise and the Disney “A Christmas Carol” 3D train experience. (Told you we’ve been busy) 🙂
