Family Vacation in Savannah, GA

For a few years now we’ve talked about having a family get-together of some sort. This year we went ahead and reserved a house in Savannah, Georgia. With a few month’s notice and everyone’s buy-in, the family gathering finally happened. It was certainly nice to get together without the event of a funeral or wedding.

Here are some of the sights from the week:

Sitting in the airplane, waiting for everyone to settle
Tomo Chi-Chi’s grave – sitting on the bench and waiting for a phone call
Two visits to the bookstore resulted in this – think I should go back and add some words to the books
Ashley, Hassel, Tobey, Britt, Bailee and Matt hanging out upstairs at the house
Sitting in the shade under the pavilion at Tybee Island beach
Quick walking sketch of the fountain at Forsyth Park
Enjoying coffee while hiding from the rain at The Sentient Bean
Back to Tybee Island to fish off the pier – I sketched the beach from the pier
Fishing from the pier, Bailee, Britt, Matt and Hannah
Quick sketch of the Cathedral of St. John the Baptist
Waiting in line for ice cream at Leopold’s – the “5th best in the world”
Hanging out at Tybean coffee on Tybee Island
The Tybean octopus
Waiting out the rain at Moon River brewery
Quick sketch of the Forsyth Animal Hospital
Enjoying drinks at the Savannah Coffee Roasters

Most of these are sketches with a micron pen, occasionally with watercolor added. A few are a Lamy fountain pen or a dip pen with the fountain pen ink.

Edit: Here’s the view on the way from Savannah to Atlanta to catch our plane.
