Sojourn in Savannah.

As the saying goes........"a picture is worth a  thousand words".
I hope that these first pix, from the QCI's 12th Annual Meeting in Savannah last week, reflect what a great time was had by all those who were there.

On Saturday evening some QCI members dined at the Olde Pink House on Reynolds Square, there were many celebrations taking place there that evening, including a large wedding party in the second floor ballroom.
There was a wedding celebration at the the Olde Pink House on Saturday evening.
As we left the OPH several members were invited to join the sparkler salute to the Bride & Groom.

 Ann, Maggie & Gay joined in the sparkler fun.

Tom greets Mary & Susie as they board the trolley Sunday morning.
On Sunday we boarded the Oglethorpe blue trolley and headed to River Street for our Riverboat Lunch & Cruise.

Former cotton warehouses on River Street are now home
 to stores and lively bars and restaurants.
 After lunch, as the paddle boat left the dock, many of us went up on deck to watch the scenery slip by.

  2. Maggie, My parents live close to Savannah so we always include a visit there when we are visiting family. I love all the parks and the historic homes in this lovely town. Sounds like you had a great trip.
