met up with my daughter in Toronto… took a while, but we finally found one another… on the plane we were catching up with pictures…


once at the W Atlanta-Midtown, an excellent choice I must say, we had a bit of lunch…


the place is sleek and modern and hip…

then it was off to the Atlanta Botanical Garden to see the Chihuly exhibition… the weather channel said it was over 40 degrees Celsius… we walked about half an hour to get there, and then wandered the Garden for an hour and a half…


there are a number of installations and we didn’t get to see them all, yet… 

but this is why we came…


spent quite some time in this spot… there are benches throughout the Garden and here they were under a pergola with nice music playing… the sound of the falling water was peaceful…

another long hot and muggy walk back to the hotel… thirty minutes at plus forty is rather tiring… had a nap and found a great place for supper, the South City Kitchen… 


we asked a man who was walking by to take our picture and he happily obliged…

then back to the Garden for an evening walk to see the installations lit up


we ended with a bit of retail therapy in the ABG Chihuly Gift Shop – where I did not buy the $8000 bowl that I really wanted…

below is the first Chihuly that my daughter saw when she came to Atlanta many years ago and which has led us to Seattle, Montreal and now Atlanta…


what a spectacular day it has been;-)…
