More in Savannah - Forsyth Park to Betty Bombers

The 30 acre Forsyth Park and it's lovely fountain are a major Savannah landmark. The park is near where we are staying and is a big part of our day.  We walk near or through it to get to most places and we walk to it to just sit and people-watch under the Live Oaks.


These lively guys appear to be best buddies and meet up in the park most days. I added a friend to the crew and he  fits right in.

The gentleman on the bench seemed to be contemplative, striking me as from another time. Our Lady of the Parasol joined him.  The dramatic flower accent is courtesy of Deb Booth from one of her quilled art pieces.

Betty Bombers is also in our neighborhood and has become a favorite place.  It is a World War 11-themed eatery [especially love the 40' music that plays] and is uniquely located in the building that houses the American Legion Post 135.  Savannah is famous for being home of the Mighty 8th Flying Fortress B-17 planes during WW11, when the air force was the Army Air Corps. 

My father was in the Army Air Corps and served as a plane mechanic.  I had particular fun working on this collage on my father's birthday and you'll find a little  homage to him in the portrait of the handsome fellow on the right.

  1. I loved these! I love being able to 'travel' with you - you always brighten my day with your collages!

  2. Just got home from Savannah last weekend - had a lovely visit, good food and really enjoyed the Telfair Museums.


Thanks for sharing!
