Savannah, Georgia. Part 1


Our sultry June Savannah stay started here, in our little pink Victorian. We listened to prolific mockingbirds on the balcony and at breakfast, inhaled juicy peach waffles - while resting the plates on our laps. You've seen some of these photos in my sneak peek, but even so, here they are again...


Indoor cats.


Outdoor avian fun at Forsyth Park. 


Packing up for the night...




Cheers! 

We enjoyed a stiff Martini while we watched people and parrots. 




The famous Forsyth fountain.

The oldest tree in Savannah.


The infamous Mercer House.

Stairs to the popular waterfront...





Hot gumbo and beignets at Hueys. Yum!



A beautiful square in bloom.

Quintessential Savannah. 



More alley cats. 



And more drinks. Dueling double whiskey and coke zeros from the martini bar, Jen's and Friends - we were besties by the end of the trip! 

It's a Savannah tradition to get a "Go" cup.

Loved everything about this post ...as I did our visit to this great city ... except, I must admit, those beignets....just could not bring myself to love them, either there or in that other city where they're so famous ;)..... I'll take the martini and two bowls of the gumbo instead, thanks! And either Savannah or that other City anytime.

That gumbo looks delicious (dark and thick). Like your photos a lot. I really like charming cities (and towns) like this!

Reminds me so much of a visit my daughter and I made to Savannah in about 1998...it's one of our favorite southern cities. How lovely to stay in that pink Victorian. You shared some wonderful photos that brought back some great memories. Hope you made it to the Bonaventure Cemetery too.

Savannah is a beautiful, little city. I visited there once but couldn't stay long enough to see everything. Your photos really capture the atmosphere.
