This past weekend we went through Rome, Georgia and *wow* was it ever so nice and so pretty.
Rome is one of those towns where people still use their downtown. There were *all* kinds of shops to go in – from Blacktop’s folk art gallery to all kinds of antique shops, a gourmet shop, restaurants:
…an old theatre:
This capitoline wolf copy – the Romulus and Remus statue with the mother wolf – was sent to Rome by Mussolini, and they have it in front of the city hall and auditorium:
At Berry College, they have this old grist mill:
A sign beside the mill read that this is one of the largest overshot waterwheels in the country. It was *gorgeous*:
…and when we were leaving campus, this mommy deer was leading her baby across the road:
The baby was so little that he or she couldn’t keep up so the mommy came back to help it:
There are a lot more interesting places to have lunch in Rome, but Av (and his brother) are huge Chick-Fil-A fans and Georgia is the only place where they have Chick-Fil-A Dwarf House restaurants. See that little short red door in the front?
What else makes it different is that they sell everything on the regular CFA menu plus things like a Hot Brown, pot pie, hamburger and even steak:
It was okay. Mostly it was just the novelty of going to a CFA and having a server and a menu and all those other options…
