(Photo heavy post ahead.)
Hard to believe that one week ago, I was in beautiful Savannah, Georgia, watching an even more beautiful moment. My cousin Gina, getting married to her husband Jonathan.
First, don’t forget about this post. It’s important, it means a lot, and it still stands.
And now, a bit of fun. And all these photos were taken by me unless otherwise noted.
A picture of our hotel room, just because I’m weird, and I like hotels:
This is a view of the Savannah River, which was one block away from the hotel we stayed at:
The treacherous steps, and the signage attached; this photo taken by Older Sister:
The steps were really steep and really big. Younger Brother practically had to walk sideways to get down them! And you really felt a burn walking back up them!:
A view of River Street:
Another view of River Street:
River Street, and the interesting trees:
The Savannah River, looking east towards the ocean:
The Savannah River, looking west:
Selfie at the Savannah River:
Older Sister snapped this panoramic pic of me and Younger Brother along the Savannah River:
A pirate ship docked on the Savannah River. Tours were ongoing, but we didn’t go:
Instead, we enjoyed a seafood dinner. I had crawfish! A whole pound of crawfish! I know, this picture is terrible, but it’s the crawfish. It was interesting, sorta tasted like shrimp, only a bit saltier:
This painting was in our hotel room. Once again, just because, and I’m weird that way:
An old fashioned paddle boat, which I gather is used as a ferry boat nowadays:
A striking monument to slavery, containing a quote from Maya Angelou; the quote reads as follows:
“We were stolen, sold, and bought together from the African continent. We got on the slave ships together. We lay back to belly in the holds of the slave ships in each others excrement and urine together; sometimes died together, and our lifeless bodies thrown overboard together. Today, we are standing up together with faith and even some joy.”
A carrier ship, on its way back to the ocean after a delivery. The Savannah River is still used for commerce today.
Savannah, Georgia is also famous as the setting of the novel Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil by John Berendt. The Bird Girl statue on the cover of the book is also located in Savannah, but I didn’t get to see it, nor did I get a souvenir statue, even though I wanted one:
This is what I wore to the wedding:
The main altar of Sacred Heart Catholic Church, where Gina and Jonathan were married:
Here are some photos from the wedding and reception. And all these photos were taken by me.
Congratulation once again to Gina and Jonathan. May you have many blessed and happy years ahead of you.
