Days 16 and 17 – Leaving Arizona, Arriving Atlanta

10 Oct

Wednesday 19th September 2018

This morning we drove to Phoenix, dropped off the car – we have driven 1,506 miles, through mountains and deserts, through small towns and farmland and have flown to Atlanta, Georgia to spend the next four days with my lovely Brother and Sister-in-law.  It will be good to stop moving for a few days!

Thursday 20th September

My Dear SIL planned a treat for us for today – a trip to Atlanta’s beautiful Botanical Gardens and an evening performance of Midsummer Night’s Dream in the Gardens and what a treat that turned out to be! The garden was a story book delight! All the characters are made out of plants and are exquisite.

The Dragon (with a Sleeping Princess)

The Phoenix

Rip Van Winkle

Earth Goddess


We didn’t manage to see everything on this visit as we had to have dinner and make our way to the Theatre space which was on the 63ft wide pond! It was still very hot – it had been a very humid 29C earlier and so, along with the ticket, each member of the audience was given a fan, a lovely gesture.

The play was an absolute delight, sparkling from start to finish with just six actors taking all the parts and clearly loving every minute as we did.
