Snow, and Savannah

To be clear, Savannah did not have snow. We did. A couple inches of it, and it turned our little coastal plains a nice, bright white. While slippery, it was attractive, though a few local birds apparently had a tough time finding food. To help out, we decided to open up a restaurant:

At one point, we had a dozen doves in our front yard. What a beautiful sight.

It melted after a few days, and we headed to Savannah, Georgia for a conference my husband had to attend in conjunction with a class. I accompanied him, and sat in on several informative lectures regarding the Lord's Supper. My only comment regarded the absence of discussion on the tie-in between the Passover meal and the institution of the Lord's Supper. I'm sure they had their reasons (avoiding the obvious, perhaps, due to time constraints) but since one points to the other, which is a fulfillment of the first, I felt more attention should have been paid to the relationship.

We had little time outside of the conference to explore, and rain washed away what plans we did make. But I did manage to snap a few photos:

Statue of General James Oglethorpe, located in the center of Chippewa Square. This square was used as the backdrop for the bus stop scenes in the movie, Forrest Gump:

One of the many carriage rides available in Savannah. It's a must-do activity for first-time visitors:

A parting glance at Savannah:

A palmetto tree chillin in the breeze:

An interesting week, to say the least.
