Observations about Art, Movies, Books, etc.

Savannah Visitor’s Center

The visitor’s center in Savannah has a little museum area so we paid our little bit of money and walked around the various exhibits.

Of course the draw that brought me to Savannah:

Forrest Gump

…And His Bench.

There was also a nice textile & quilt display:

Savannah is also home to the Girl Scouts and many a pilgrimage has been made by girls to the birthplace of their organization. The museum had many displays including:

Hats From Different Eras

and

Knives From Different Eras

So next time you’re out and a Girl Scout tries to sell you cookies, you should probably buy some so she doesn’t cut you.

Savannah was also apparently a good place to trap beavers.

Beaver Pelt

Back in the day, beaver pelts were used for hats and coat collars.

Savannah was very cool. I’m really glad we went and toured the city.
