A Colorful Saturday

Sat1

Yesterday’s Saturday ended up being such a Colorfully Beautiful day from Dawn till Dusk!  (Okay, maybe I wasn’t up at dawn, but that just sounds so poetic to me.)  It all started out (post-dawn) when I sleepily turned the corner from my East Broad Street apartment to stroll down Savannah’s main street, Broughton Street, to forage for breakfast.  Well, lo and behold, parts of Broughton and nearby streets looked like, well, like this:

What?  Huh?  At first I thought maybe it was just me (as if often the case).  After all, I was not 100% awake but was 100% hungry.

But then I began to see folks who looked like, well, like this:

Is that normal?  So, being a college professor and all,  I thought that maybe something was up and needed to explore further.

Happy!  I’m all about some happy!  That’s right up my alley.

The Color Run!  It wasn’t me, after all!

I LOVE participating in road races when you don’t have to run.  It’s so refreshing!  (And non-perspiratory.)

(I’m not really sure what the above is.  Somebody pointed to a boxy-looking thingy, so I stuck my head inside.  That has gotten me in so very much trouble over the years.)

Then, exhausted, I ate breakfast at Goosefeathers (go there when you’re in Savannah, near Ellis Square).  And headed to the colorful Forsyth Farmers Market.

One the way back home I found my colorful dream vehicle.

Later Saturday evening, I had DELICIOUS and colorful fresh-from-the-market okra-tomato-potato gumbo.
