Road Trip

Daniel and I took a short road trip Thursday, Friday and today to Roswell, Athens, and Augusta, GA and had a great time! I don't know about you, but a road trip always gives us a new perspective and gets our creative juices flowing. Here are a few pictures to share our experience with you. The first two pictures I took in a huge antique mall in Roswell. I loved those colors!One of the beautiful old homes in Roswell.
Some gorgeous flowers we found in Roswell - Lenten roses, peonies, and irises, to show just a few...

One of the streets in downtown Athens (home of University of Georgia).
A fun shop window in Athens.
An old album cover - isn't it great?
All over Athens we found painted versions of Uga, the bulldog mascot of the University of Georgia. We especially liked this one.
This morning, we were lucky to find a fun cafe in Athens for breakfast. I loved the colors!
Happy Daniel with a latte and a scone...
Later today, a photo at Clarkes Hill Lake, one of the huge lakes created by damming the Savannah River. It was gorgeous!
In Augusta, GA, we walked on the river walk where I thought I saw a turtle in the water and pointed it out to Daniel who saw immediately that it was a water snake and got this great photo of it. We watched it swim for a long time...
I love this photo Daniel took of me in a Cuban restaurant with a painted sky!
Now we are happy to be home again and decided that living in Savannah we truly live in one of the (if not the) most beautiful cities in Georgia! Tomorrow I am heading back into my studio and hopefully will have more artwork to share soon!


  1. Oh thanks for that little short get-a-way! I enjoyed reading about your little trip. I love getaways like this. The snake pic is awesome. Glad you had a wonderful time.

  2. It looks like you had a wonderful time. I love road trips. We don't do them as often as I would like because of our two dogs. I loved the photo of the suitcases-those color combinations.

  3. Gorgeous photos, what a beautiful city. The color of the lake is so different than what we have in these for the snake, yikes! Glad you had such a lovely day.

  4. What beautiful pictures & what a beautiful pair ; ) !!!

  5. Fantastic photo!!! I love those antique suitcases with the destination stickers. Aren't those fabulous? You and Daniel are gorgeous! Judging by the happy smiles on your faces, the road trip was the perfect getaway. Thanks for sharing. :)

    Thanks for sharing this trip with me. I love the suitcase and the pastel colors. I also love the painted sky in the Cuban restaurant. I enjoyed you and Daniel's happy faces. I totally get that road trips get your creative juices flowing. I wonder how you'll (if at all) translate that into art...

  7. These photos are wonderful! What a great and beautiful trip you went on. The flowers are definately out in Georgia! You two look too cute ;)

  8. What a wonderful day! I love that pic too of you by the painted sky. Very neat.
