Shall We Gather at the River

On our recent visit to Savannah, we stayed downtown by the river.

The evening we arrived, we strolled along the riverfront, taking in the sites and sampling Savannah culture.

Street performers entertained the crowd along the river's edge, while across the street rows of shops and restaurants beckoned.

The children enjoyed exploring the riverfront -- especially after our long drive.

Watching the boats slowly make their way down the river gave a peaceful cadence to our time by the river.

The next evening, we returned to the riverfront after a full day spent exploring downtown Savannah. I coaxed weary smiles from the children with promises of sweet treats.

And Savannah's Candy Kitchen had a variety of homemade treats to tempt us!

Fresh sorbet was a perfect treat -- a sweet end to a perfect southern day!
