Santa, Boots & A Christmas Goose



There were so many incredible sights in St. Marys, Georgia it seems a shame not to share more of what the town offers. I loved the double porch on this quaint pink inn.


 The front is deceiving because the side of the building stretch on and on forever.


This beige building with a cannon in front reminds me of those found in the Caribbean...especially with the covered porch above the sidewalk.


This white home with its green shutters and two chimneys would be equally at home anywhere in Ontario.


This blue-on-blue home has been transformed into a coffee shop. Although it has less square feet than many of its neighbuors, it makes up for it with a western flare.


The grounds were edged with a iron fence draped with burlap garland. 


Sitting on the side entrance steps were these cowboy boots.


To complete the theme, a cowboy Santa greets guests at the door.


Wooden barrels were strategically placed by the outdoor tables, and each contained a Christmas goose.


Meanwhile, the yellow b&b across the main street featured another form of wildlife...


A black bear proudly displays a fish above his head!


On the doorstep of this red, white and blue one-storey gift shop...


...a friend or neighbor had left a bag of fresh Florida grapefruit.


Which reminds me, I hope Santa brought you everything on your Christmas list. You did mail it, didn't you? This mailbox is almost too lovely to use!


 Although it's not an official holiday in the US, we wish you and yours a super Boxing Day. Cheers!

    1. Thanks, Al! We're enjoying our time in Boston as well, but it's -4C today and we're getting a little anxious to head back south. Weather permitting we'll likely be on the road on Friday. Hugs to you both, and safe trip back to EL.
