Go Back in Time at Colonial Faire and Muster

The Georgia Historical Society is presenting a Colonial Faire and Muster at Wormsloe State Historic Site on Saturday and Sunday, February 5 and 6, 2011 from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm both days. The event is free and open to the public.
Visitors can see, hear and experience everyday life during colonial times through activities and demonstrations by on-site interpreters. There will be historical re-enactments, cannon firings, music and dance, and demonstrations of cooking and craft techniques.
As part of the GHS's Georgia History Festival, over 40 museums, historic homes, national forts, state historic sites and other cultural institutions commemorate the founding of Georgia on what is referred to as Super Museum Sunday. The event takes place on Sunday, February 6. Participating museums and historic sites in coastal Georgia and surrounding areas open their doors to the public free of charge from 12 noon to 4:00 pm.
Some of the Museums open here in the Historic District and close by are: Andrew Low House Museum, Isaiah Davenport House Museum, Telfair's Jepson Center for the Arts, Telfair's Owens-Thomas House, Telfair Academy, Juliette Gordon Low Birthplace, Ships of the Sea Museum, Harper Fowlkes House, Fort Pulaski, Old Fort Jackson, Tybee Island Light Station and Museum and this is just a few. You can see the whole list, which is amazingly long at the GHS site
This is going to be an amazing weekend filled with lots to see and do, and all for free! Don't miss it I know I won't.

Another Great Weekend in Savannah

"Food, Frights and Fall.....Savannah wows me again." That's how Vicki started her travel blog. A friend of mine found this blog post and forwarded it to me. When I saw the photographs and read Vicki's descriptions of her and Matt's weekend in Savannah, I was blown away and knew I had to share. Vicki and Matt are repeat guests of the Zeigler House Inn. I knew they were a bright, fun-loving couple but I had no idea they were such accomplished photographers and writers. Her descriptions of Savannah and what it has to offer were right on. They made me want to go right out and follow their lead. Follow this link and see the beautiful pictures and Vicki's wonderful insights of Savannah.

Happy New Year!

It's a new year. 2010 has come and gone and we're starting anew with 2011. My goodness where did the time go? With every new year comes the inevitable rush of New Year's resolutions. You know, we all make them. I'm going to eat better, exercise more, lose those extra few pounds, quit procrastinating and wasting time, get all those things done we keep putting off. Sound familiar? Well I've made all of these plus a few more. Last year my resolution was to not make any more resolutions. I guess you now know how that one worked out. Anyway, one of mine was to get serious about this blogging thing. I really don't know much about this social media stuff but everyone keeps preaching to me I need to get with it. So, I promise I will try to do a better job of getting things out to you all.
To all of my guests and friends, past, present and future, Happy New Year!
