Georgia on my Mind


Spending a few weeks in the southeast where I'm finishing editing my book 100 Places in Greece Every Woman Should Go, due out February 2016. Took a day trip to Savannah where I captured these angels atop a monument in Wright Square. 

Savannah skies are always mysterious, with huge live oak sprawling like daguerrotypes against the porcelain blue and white.

Made a stop at Savannah Bee, with its artistic wall of honey in glass bottles

and then the de rigeur mid afternoon cappucino

followed by oysters and martinis at The Grey

a fabulous eatery in a refitted Greyhound bus station.

I may have Georgia on my mind during the day, but it's back to South Carolina for the night.

  1. Amanda, I am so proud of you. You must have been working so hard. Back when I wrote my novel, it was on a yellow legal pad. It is a mind#*^@. Can't wait and I have always wanted to go to Greece. Though I know of its beauty, I think the history would blow e away.

      Writing a novel longhand blows my mind too! I'd love to know what it was about.

  2. Glad to hear you are having a bit of a break. Nothing like Savannah for a bit of beauty.

    1. I've always loved walking the squares of Savannah - one of my favorite cities, filled with history and mystery...

  3. Savannah is on my bucket list. One day I will make it there. I have a feeling it may be one of those places that I will never want to leave.

  4. We have only driven through Georgia en route to other locales... but you have me thinking it may be a destination stop. I'm a big fan of state parks, so I'll have to look into that. Congrats on your newest book!
