Sunday, New Years Day, we went to East Atlanta to eat with #2. It was a beautiful day out. The sun was shining and I think it was in the 60’s. We decided while we were there to take her “son” and our grandpoopie, Rufus, for a walk/run. She did the running and most of the walking. I did walking and mostly taking pictures. Hubby was just along for the walk.
East Atlanta is what I would call a “quirky” area of Atlanta (to put it mildly). The area is undergoing an urban gentrification of sorts. But instead of pushing out all the lower class citizens and repopulating it with upper class and upper middle class you can go from old established neighborhoods, to “the hood” in about 5 feet. Then you throw in the kind of Bohemian, yuppie, hippie vibe and you get a real melting pot of houses and yards, etc. I actually really like what that area is becoming.
I’m going to divide this into two posts because I got a lot of pictures. I think today I’m going to do mostly the decorations, Christmas and otherwise that I found around the neighborhood and then later I’ll do the vegetation.
I hope you enjoyed our walk through East Atlanta. Later this week I’ll share all the stuff we found growing and blooming!
