Earth Day in Savannah, GA

**All photos and descriptions by JF.

On Saturday, we went to Forsyth Park to see what the Earth Day celebrations were like in Savannah, while Cat was working on a big contract.

Earth Day tights!
Mara wanted to hold the python. This fellow was fully grown.
Aïsha was focused on the musicians on stage playing folk music.
Beautiful fountain in Forsyth Park.
Thes street across from the park that looked so much like Old Sherbrooke, in Quebec (most of the old part of town did).
The schedule of activities at the park included talks on urban gardening and medicinal herbs (quite classic for this type of event...), but also an interesting series of talks on silent sports done in nature, which included talks on sea kayaking, kayak fishing, rock climbing and trail running. We listened to the guys presenting the rock climbing coop, but they were so unorganized and so bias on bouldering that they were saying trad climbing was for crazy people...

Nice Vespas! The old and the new!

I've been to Savannah three times, but your photographs capture something quite special that I don't know I ever saw in the city. Thanks for posting!

Thank you, Teresa for your comments, I really appreciate them! We really loved Savannah and maybe our photos are showing some of that!
