We planned to meet a few re-enactors (to participate with in upcoming events) at a Living history museum, attend local festivities and of course tour the historic small towns!
A true cotton blossom
Our next tour guide was very informative! She showed us a few homes, the General store, a handmade pottery kiln and school-house.
Flowers in the kitchen garden...
I was able to meet and chat with the other re-enactors, and enjoyed touring the town with my family. It's a much better experience to be in 19th century attire. I must say, the corset & multiple petticoats definitely made me "feel the part" as the weather inched above 95 degrees. Although cotton "breathes" (heh..that's debatable) its quite hot and bothersome when you're wearing three layers of it!
Small town Fair
Throughout GA, many small towns are centered around the local railroad station. The first "rails" were built in Georgia in the 1830's. Through successes and trials, more tracks were constructed and continued into the strong, 5000 mile network we know today! (Just a little history!)
Mother browsing through the antiques...
We had a full day, and it's nice to reflect on todays adventures
from the comforts of...Home.
