Pete and I went to Callaway Gardens for the Harvest Moon Festival. I expected to enjoy things they had set up and it’s a gorgeous time of year to be outside in Georgia.
It was pretty.
We got to see the B-52′s!
We ate a brownie.
With carrots. and spinach. and orange juice. and flaxseed.
For real. I bought one.
Yes, the Harvest Moon Festival was a lot of fun and Callaway Gardens was a lovely experience.
But, what made it wonderful?? The fact that we had every expectation of the place to be inaccessible and were WRONG.
Yeah, the beach was off-limits, but I plan to tell them about the wonders of having a few sand beach chairs available.
The music was loud was loud, but because it was outside I could get away from the direct noise and still enjoy the concert…my first since the strokes.
It was a hilly, but for someone that doesn’t get to enjoy being out side much because of the lack of concrete, the walkways and paved paths were a joy.
We go a LOT of places and experience how loosely they use the the words “handicap accessible” when building bathrooms. The bathrooms at CG were large enough that we could both get in without the BATHROOM DANCE we’ve had to learn.
THANK YOU, Callaway Gardens to opening our eyes this great place we could enjoy as a family.
THANK YOU, for not forgetting how important accessibility is, not just convenience, a must-have
