Birthday Weekend

We enjoyed a nice weekend in Savannah with friends and family celebrating Mina's 7oth birthday.

We arrived on Thursday afternoon and Marvin indulged me with a ride through Ardsley Park, my favorite neighborhood in Savannah.

These trees dripping with  hanging moss are beautiful. The stately houses on each side of the street make this a lovely area of Savannah.

Several houses were decorated for Halloween but this lovely home just had the lone Jack O Lantern in the window.

Before heading to our studio apartment at the beach we stopped for dinner at Carey Hilliards. We had sea food but I only snapped a picture of their onion rings...our favorites.

On Friday we did some shopping and met up with family in the afternoon. After visiting at my nephew's home we went to Huckapoos for pizza.

I got a picture of the birthday buddies.

Saturday was Marvin's birthday and Mina's big day. Mina had purchased a cake for Marvin too! I  thought that was very sweet of her.

It was rainy so we had to move the party inside but there was plenty of room for visiting.

This beach house has provided many hours of love and fellowship over the 43 years I have been in the family. It now belongs to my nephew and he remodeled it and rents it as an Air B and B. He and his wife live in an apartment next door so it is a very nice arrangement for them.  Located in old Fort Screven it is a historic property at Tybee.

Sunday we took to the was cloudy when we started our walk but cleared up quickly.

The beach and the ocean here are much different from Gulf Shores.

We were happy to see the clouds disappear and soon there were none at all.

A view of one of the streets near the beach. It is a great area for walking!

Marvin took this picture of us Under the Boardwalk.

We had a lovely weekend but we are glad to be back at Sweet Home Alabama. Now to catch up on the Laundry!!
