As if time has rewound...a large sailboat docked on the river...similar to those that would have been used during the colonial period as new Georgia residents arrived in this port city in the late 1700s.
Even though these old building have been converted to shops and restaurants that attract tourists, they were once used for commerce of grain, feed and cotton.
As we dined in one of these centuries old buildings I was again struck by the clash of old and new. Against the walls of stone, brick and heart pine, cords for internet and electricity snake along the ceiling.
This is why I love this city...such a mix of American history and culture. And most importantly, while visiting I can almost feel 17 years old again reading Eugenia Price novels from the library.
