We got out last night to the opening night of
Arts in the Heart of Augusta 2018. With hurricane Florence creeping over the region that’s probably all we’ll get to this year, but it was great to get a meal and enjoy a bit of the festival.
Update: we did manage to get back on Sunday for another meal and to see a few more performances.
We took a couple days this weekend to relax and visit Savannah.
Mickve Israel neo-gothic sanctuary
Deer Skin Torah
Perhaps the oldest Torah in the United States from the 15th century on display at the Mickve Israel museum.
Steeples of St. Johns
The Cathedral of St. John the Baptist steeples.
The band's name was Random Acts and their performance matched their name.
The paddle wheel from the Georgia Queen.
The Georgia Queen with passengers mostly loaded for the afternoon tour.

The Waving Girl statue of Florence Martus.
Bride of Savannah
This bride appeared to be enjoying her photo session in the park.
I just loved the name of this place, even though much of their menu was meat pies.
The slave quarters from the Owens-Thomas House.
Owens-Thomas House garden
The back garden from the Owens-Thomas House and Slave Quarters. Nothing about it is authentic it's just to make visitors happy.
Owens-Thomas House Inside window
I liked the way the light passed through this inside window at the Owens-Thomas House.
Owens-Thomas House Bridge
The Owens-Thomas House second floor as a bridge over the stairs. I bet the kids who grew up here loved it.
Portait of Kahlil Gibran
This portrait of Kahlil Gibran is on display at the Telfair Academy.
Boy and Donkey
This posed image of a boy resting on his donkey is part of a collection that caught my attention at the Telfair Academy.
The description of the collection of images that included the previous.
One of Savannah' many part fountains.

Telfair's Jesop Center had a photography exhibit called Open Road at the top of their open stairs
The work by Ryan McGinley caught my eye.

Her thoughtful look is quite nice.
