Todd pulled over so I could take a few pictures. The sun was directly overhead so I took what pictures I could and decided to stop on the way back to get a few more once the sun was setting. Wouldn't ya know, the farmer had picked the whole field by the time we came back through!
It really was some of the most perfectly clean fluffy bolls I've ever seen!
Augusta is a strange little town. I don't know if it was because of the holiday weekend but we saw approximately 10 people the entire time we were there. We walked up and down the main street, stopped in a few antique shops but for the most part, the town was closed up. Maybe it only comes to live for the Masters?
Their riverwalk is really pretty though- it was a gorgeous cool day perfect to be outside. The ginko trees were really a gorgeous bright yellow- they lined the streets downtown and in Olde Town.
I'm still kicking myself for only grabbing my 50mm lens before we left. I was positive that I had brought my wider lens- makes pictures of scenery really tough!
Next we made our way over to Savannah. It was getting pretty dark so I wasn't able to take any pictures of the town itself but! BUT! Let me tell you about this shop.
I absolutely died when I walked in the door. It's called The Paris Market (the website doesn't do it justice).
It's got an Anthropologie feel (without the clothes) but blows Anthro out of the water. I was so overwhelmed by all of their incredible displays that I didn't even purchase anything. It's housed in a historic two story building.
Floor to ceiling are amazing salvaged finds that hold the prettiest paper, bath products, jewelry, gifts, candles, home decor- and the prices were more than reasonable.
My pictures are terrible because of the lens I had so here are a few more from my iPhone...They even had a little coffee bar over in the corner- I mean, why wouldn't they!
This honestly might be one of my most favorite stores I've ever been in. Savannah is only about 2 hours from here so we will be making another trip in the next few weeks- before Christmas- so we can see more Christmas lights. I don't particularly love the area along the river but home around the little parts are amazing- especially with their Christmas trees peeking through the windows.
