Bainbridge Georgia Walkabout

We took a short ride north to Bainbridge Georgia just to walk about on Sunday. It's a small old southern town and let me tell you, everything is closed on a Sunday. Everything except the Chinese restaurant.

Here is an overload of the very old houses decorated for Christmas. I took these snaps on the back of the moving trike so....some I could edit and straighten up.

I wonder how old some of these are and how many generations lived in this house?

The decorations are great. More work than I would want to do but who knows, if we had a stately old home like this I may go all out.

This one was huge. I couldn't get it all in one frame. I'll bet a family of 12 wouldn't get under one another's feet in this place.

This is a place we would like to try. Like everything else it was closed but when you state you have the best sandwiches in town, that's a claim I would like to check out.

This little box was in the park. How cool is this? Books, mostly for children, but it's on a honor system so you may take what you like. Next time we ride to Bainbridge I may take some books to donate.

The center of town has a park. I like this old fountain.

The gazebo is in the far corner. Concerts and events are held here and I would like to attend one if I can find a schedule of events.

It was a brilliant day for walking around. Blue skies, a bit windy, good temperatures.

Here is a cannon from the Civil War sitting near the center.

This was a nice ride and a good walk around the small center of town. Sometime we'll have to ride back and check out The Bean Cafe and see what other businesses are open.

Hope you enjoyed the walkabout!
