Savannah Sneak Peak


We just got back from lazy and luscious, Savannah, Georgia. While we were waiting at the airport yesterday, I arranged a quick sneak peak of our week long city tour. A little taste of everything we experienced there...like the bucolic town squares surrounded by an eclectic mix of architecture as shown above. 


Weekends meant parrot play at famous Forsythe park.


Spooky Bonaventure Cemetery. They say Savannah is literally built on its dead. That sounds like a good post for October...


"Go" cups in Johnson square. Put it this way, the bartender at Jen's Friends knew us by the end of the week. We had so much fun relaxing in the numerous town squares. But bad things happened there...


Savannah house cat.


The oldest tree in Savannah.


Precious patina.


The famous Mercer house from the novel, Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil. 


The key to spelling. 


Lemon custard and chocolate chocolate chip at famous Leopold's ice cream. 


What lies beneath. (a lot in Savannah)


Phone fun at the Jepson museum's interactive art exhibit. Do you recognize those two fools?


Flute guy at Johnson square. 




The fountain at Forsythe.

I hope you enjoyed my sneak peak. There will be a lot more to come when I have time to unpack my souvenirs!

Oh what a wonderful sneak peak. Last April, I met a Savannah resident. We became fast friends and she invited me over to see her beautiful city. I mean to take her up on her offer, plus a taste of her fried chicken.

Archeological excavations over the years, have proved that many cities are built on cemeteries, and Savannah is probably not an exception.
Old trees fascinate me, and wherever I go, I usually look for 'the oldest tree in town".

Oh my! What a beautiful city! A visit to Savanah and Charleston is in my bucket list.
