Returning Guests (and dear friends) Dee and Don spent 7 nights with us last week and they brought their bicycles with them, including Don’s hand crafted super bicycle. Heads turned and cameras clicked every time someone spotted the rather unusual bicycle as they rode around the downtown historic district. Red, on the other hand, does not look impressed.
August 17th was the annual 5k Color Run in Savannah. The Color Run, also known as the Happiest 5k on the Planet, is a unique paint race that celebrates healthiness, happiness, individuality, and giving back to the community. The race benefited Horizons Savannah, which helps to provide students from low-income families in the Savannah area with an academic, cultural, and recreational program designed to help close the achievement gap by preventing summer learning loss and encouraging academic growth. Park Avenue Manor Guest Kathleen G. participated in the race and earned her “colors”.
Last weekend, July 11-13, the Park Avenue Manor was taken over by the Ladies of LaSalle-Peru! Just kidding, these ladies are all long-time friends and decided to have their annual get-together at our centrally located Inn. We were pleased they chose us and we all had a blast while they were here. Pictured below are the lovely Ladies wearing their fascinator hats, perfect attire for strolling the streets of historic Savannah.
Saturday, April 27th was the annual Savannah College of Art & Design (SCAD) Sidewalk Art Festival at Forsyth Park. Each participant artist was given one sidewalk square to paint with various colors of chalk. The artwork was very creative and exceptionally colorful. Here are a few of the ones we liked best:
There was also a reenactment of a civil war battle scene that was being staged at the Confederate War Monument near the Bandshell at Forsyth Park. Here are a few shots of the Civil War soldiers, widows and a Southern Belle.
For a few nights before Christmas
We were all settled in,
Staying at Park Avenue Manor
Hosted by Maurice and Glenn.
Its twinkling lights welcomed
(Such a warm hospitality),
We sipped sherry by the fire
In the glow of the Christmas tree.
Breakfast each morning
Was a most delicious treat,
Giving us a good start
As we walked Savannah’s streets.
Our Yuletide visit with you,
Filled with fun and with cheer,
Will be a happy memory
Through Christmas and the New Year.
