Bonaventure Cemetery

Bonaventure Cemetery Savannah Georgia Photography

Over the holidays Lance and I visited his family in southern Georgia. While we were visiting they so sweetly took us on a day trip to Savannah so I could check out the city.  We walked around River Street, an older part of the city with little shops and restaurants along the riverfront.  Afterwards I suggested heading over the Bonaventure Cemetery for a bit of history (and of course, to see some spanish moss).  

Bonaventure Cemetery is located east of Savannah on 100 acres of land by the Wilmington River and is a registered historical landmark by the National Registry of Historical Places.  It was beautiful and fascinating to explore the grounds.  I don’t know why, but I love cemeteries like these.  They’re full of history and stories.  We wander through the graves, reading dedications and historical markers.  As a native Californian, I love to wander through cities like Savannah which are considerably older with longer histories.  If you’re ever in Savannah, check out Bonaventure Cemetery. They have tours, too!

Tonight has finally come. In six hours I'm off to the airport. I'll be on a plane back home to San Francisco with a layover in Denver. The weekend was a perfect balance of activities and relaxation. My last day in Atlanta was wonderful. Photo shoots, aquariums, CNN, shopping and tapas. I'm sad to leave, but I can't wait to pick up where I left off back home! Back to the daily grind.

p.s. When people mumble, "tapas bar" sounds like "topless bar". just saying....

Roller Derby Rumble...

After watching Whip It, I was so excited when my friend Erika told me she'd be buying us tickets to see a roller derby bout between two local teams.  It wasn't exactly like the movie, but the roller derby was thrilling, nonetheless.  A little girl who was a daughter of one of the rollergirls explained the whole roller derby thing to me.  She was so excited about everything, it make the experience that much more thrilling.

p.s. here's Erika! Isn't she gorgeous? For all you who don't know... I met her when I went to Thailand and Cambodia on the Raddest Photo Trip Ever led by Bobby Earle. Bobby assigned us together to be roommates, and we were a perfect fit. I found our room a little haven from the heat and the exhaustion of traveling for three weeks.  We were a good combo... I credit it to the youngest child + oldest child syndrome... without fail she woke me up every morning and left the light on for me if I was getting back late.    And even though I kid that we barely know each other... hanging out with her this weekend feels like I'm spending time with an old friend!  woohoo.
