Happy Easter

Mary, John, and I experienced a delightful Easter weekend visit to Savannah, Georgia. Skies were mostly blue, the sun was warm, and the temperature was in the high 70's. We arrived from Florida on Friday afternoon, visited a quilt shop and the 8th Air Force Wing Museum. In the evening we walked the riverfront and had seafood gumbo and beans with red rice at the Bayou Cafe. On Saturday we took a historical trolley tour of the city. We were able to see the wonderful old buildings, the beautiful squares, and learn the history of the city. John even had the opportunity to play keyboard and entertain at an art gallery in The City Market. Lunch was at the historic Pirate's House where we dined on fried chicken, lima beans, collard greens, scallops wrapped in bacon, and other delightful dishes. Sunday morning we were blessed to worship at The Lutheran Church of the Ascension. This historic church is home of a vital and active congregation. Easter morning worship included a bell choir and a trumpet player. Following worship we attended a breakfast with a petting zoo in the church basement. It was a wonderful way to celebrate Easter morning.
