Pieces of home

So Beth in NYC came for a visit this past weekend. She'd wanted a break from "the big city" and, so, came to Atlanta.

; )

This is closer to "city-living" than I've ever known, so her idea made me chuckle, just a little. I'd last about five minutes living in Manhattan. Anyway, I was happy to show her a couple favorite pieces of home...

We visited Arabia Mountain and checked in with the Elf Orpine... still not blooming! I haven't decided what those little white flowers are, yet. Maybe Sandwort?

We checked in with the sunset... gorgeous!

We checked in with each other... we're all doing okay!

We wandered around Oakland Cemetery...


(where Beth had an unfortunate run-in with fire ants!)

and I got to observe a real photographer at work!


; )

I checked in with Spring... on its way!

We wandered downtown for rainy views of some very tall buildings...

(Beth, of course, was particularly bored by this part.)

We took against-the-rules photos of a sand mandala at Emory...

And finished up at a favorite burger joint!

The weekend went too fast, but I was so glad to see her friendly face here.

: )

It looks as though you had fun...
I think the fire ants need more explaining.

Ha! I wondered if you took a picture of me lying on the ground!

I miss you guys already and think I need another visit. ;-)

Woha - isn't Atlanta a pretty big place?

Ouch on the fire ant bites. Been there. Ouch!

Fire Ants are becoming a sort of Southern ritual. Laura got her first bites a few weeks ago in a different cemetery across town. So it only seemed fair to give them a taste of Beth too. - Jay

Being bitten by fire ants doesn't sound like my idea of a good time but I'll never know for sure until I've experienced them first hand. Love the sunset view!
