Off to Florida

I am in Florida for some canoeing with friends from the Georgia Wilderness Society and the Florida Sport Paddlers Club.

Hope to have some photos when I return.

Think warm thoughts...the weather for the first few days is supposed to be cool, but warming toward the end.

Sunday afternoon's snow

A bit of snow fell up on top of the Chestnut Knob near my Mom and Dad's house. It was very pretty!

Nu-Way Afterdark

Like their slogan says, "I'd go a long way for a Nu-Way"

This is one of the nation's oldest hotdog restaurants! It is as old as Nathan's in New York City, but has a better flavor....and it is right here in Macon, GA!

Sidewalk Splendor

I really liked the way the light fell onto the sidewalk from this walkway light in Macon the other night.

Scrolls in Repetition

While walking in downtown Macon, I spotted this line of decorative scrollwork beneath a balcony on Mulberry Street. It was taken at night, so that is reason for the slightly strange coloring...which I actually like!

I just love repetitive patterns!

Downtown Macon's Christmas at Night

Last night, Bonnie and I strolled around downtown for a while. The air was cool and brisk, but that just made the yummy Cuban sandwich even better at the end of the evening. Here are a couple shots of the big tree. On the left is the old Armory Ballroom and to the right are the twin spires of St. Joseph's Catholic Church. To see a 360 view of the inside the church, click here, then click on one of the green symbol to the right of the interior shot that you want to see. Use then controls at the bottom or place the mouse over part of the image to move it about. The stained glass really is quite lovely.
