But every year we go, I vow to find a souvenir that will last. I hate tchotchkes, and while t-shirts are OK, they just don't have much stamina, especially now that my t-shirt collection is down to a few overused rags that I wear twice a week. So I go home empty-handed every trip.
Leaving St. George this year, though, was quite satisfying because I found a fantastic way to commemorate our visit: ART.
And of course, it says just about everything you can about our trip to the panhandle. We ate.
We found this fun print at The Bowery Art Gallery, founded and run by local artists in Apalachicola. And now it's hanging in our dining room.
I love how the piece is framed. Playful. Not anything like me.
Of course, this piece of art is free. Glad we took him home, too.
