Georgia on my mind.

Hi y'all....................
greetings from Savannah where the weather is glorious and the QCI meeting is going very well.
(I plan to blog about the meeting over on the QCI blog later in the week).
We had a trouble free journey to Paris, no disruptions to our schedule. Mr B surprised me with a wedding anniversary upgrade to our flight arrangements and so we arrived in Charlotte, NC relaxed and refreshed.
Our suite here at the Hilton Savannah DeSoto is lovely and the staff have all been very welcoming.

On Friday evening Mr B & I decided to make the most of our last night of freedom before the madness began, by dining a deux at the Sixpence Pub across from the hotel.
Afterwards we wandered along Bull Street, through Madison Square to the SCAD (Savannah College of Art & Design) store and browsed through the eclectic art and crafts on sale before hailing a Savannah pedicab  a great fun way to get around town.
Christian was the name of our driver and he deposited us safely in Reynolds Square where we encountered Ruby (a fire truck with a difference) and the Guardians of the Ribbon who are in Savannah this week as part of the SE Georgia Pink Heals Tour.

Later we strolled down Broughton Street, window shopping along the way, before returning to the hotel to catch up on our sleep.
