Journey to Atlanta - Finale

No trip would be complete without a good meal - in fact, most of our trips are planned around THE FOOD. Only, in this case, Daniel checked out restaurants around the High Museum and we settled on a great Thai restaurant.
The food was excellent and we were able to sit outside and watch a movie being filmed across the street from us. We never did find out what they were filming and didn't see anyone famous...
We've visited or lived near most major cities in the US and still every time I am awestruck by the skyscrapers and all that glass.
Downtown Atlanta was no exception.
There was interesting architecture everywhere we looked.

A different kind of beauty, but still beautiful to me!
Soon, I'll have my latest painting for you. I think it is close to being finished and so very different from previous paintings. I keep staring at it...

In the meantime, thank you so much for your visits and comments! I so appreciate all of you!!


  1. Thai resto!!!!!
    did you get a chance to try Tom Yum Goong????
    it's delicious!

  2. You eat at the BEST places! The food is always served beautifully and looks absolutely wonderful!!!
    Sounds like the whole trip was a delightful experience---glad y'all are home safe!


  3. No one famous? Well, your husband looks like a movie star!!! Thank you for the tour of Atlanta. Two years ago I flew through it; only saw the airport and the rental car to Fort Benning. I love the tall buildings and all the glass too. What a beautiful city. **blows kisses** Deb

  4. Yay..what a wonderful trip...i love when you share your travels..beautiful and fun! wonder what film it was..hmm! Neat-o!
    Have a fabulous day!

  5. Ahhhh! You were in my neck of the woods! I love Atlanta!! It's been a long time since I've been there though..Not since the Olympics were there!! Is the Omni still operating?!...I agree with you about the beauty of architecture, especially glass-windowed buildings!! And the FOOD!!!! Oh! I need to go South for some good food!!! :-) Thank you for sharing your trip!

  6. Looks like you had a wonderful trip! How cute that you plan your visits around the food! I'm so fussy with Thai food - I only ever get Pad Thai. My hubby's the more adventurous one. The architecture there in Atlanta is amazing - thanks for sharing! Theresa

  11. Mmmm, Thai food. Delishous! I love using edible flowers in foods don't you?

    Glass buildings are awesome but I've had some sad experiences with them and birds - and that's all I'm going to say about that!
