Dawg town

I am not a football fan, oops, maybe I shouldn't have said that! I am too much of an outside garden person even in the fall and winter. This past weekend though we went to Dawg town. Translation, University of Georgia, the Georgia Bulldogs in Athens, Georgia. It is probably an hours drive give or take. I had seen some ads on outdoor cafes there (can you tell I'm missing Europe?) and thought that it would be fun to do something different. A short afternoon break. As chance would have it they were having a festival for the month of June. Here are a few pictures from our mini trip.
A small side street. They do have a lot of old buildings around and the campus is pretty big too.

You don't see many of these signs anymore.

Athens festival

Small petting zoo for the little ones.

A guy was walking a little bit behind this robot controlling it and talking into a cell phone which made the robot look like he was on his own. The small kids seemed to get a kick out of this one.

This truck was completely covered in bottle caps!!!!

Cool looking wind chimes

The famous GA bulldog although he wasn't in his usual red and black color scheme.

It turned out to be a pretty good afternoon with a few antique shop stops, my favorite thing!!!!
