A few more shots of beautiful Savannah….
Along the river.
The colonial cemetery. We did a night tour here. It is an interesting place supposedly haunted. Many of the graves exceeded the boundaries of the fence so thousands of people are buried under the sidewalks and the street. Yes, thousands. Did you know Georgia is one of the original 13 colonies …a signer of the Declaration of Independence is buried here.
This steeple was in the movie Forrest Gump, where the feather floated down from.
There are a few of these drain spouts around town. I happened to get this shot from the tour ride. This cute little guy popped into the picture!
St Bonaventure cemetery….the stones on top were intriguing.
Gracie….the most photographed statuary in the cemetery.
It was beautiful there with all the azaleas blooming and the Spanish moss draped from the trees. We walked around and took lots of photos, lost track of time and got locked in after hours. Thankfully some poor man who probably just wanted to go home to dinner was waiting on us and unlocked the gate and let us out. Now we know why there is an emergency cell phone number posted at the gate!
We lit a candle at St John the Baptist church…it is stunning inside. Don’t miss it.
We waited in line to eat at Mrs. Wilkes Boarding house for an hour and a half…the food was good. Best fried chicken ever! Seriously! These kids waited too…they kept themselves amused. We met some nice people in line.
Her earrings were as big as her!
Tybee Island. Life guard station on skis!
This cargo ship was huge but it moved along pretty fast. It disappeared from the viewfinder faster than I wanted it too.
And last but not least my beautiful traveling bud…my girl.
I told you she was cute. And she’s fun to be with. And she likes ice cream. The real deal.
More Savannah ……
Street art along the river
St John the Baptist Catholic Church. Beautiful inside too.
A must…go to Leopolds for ice cream. SCAD is Savannah College of Art and Design. They have purchased and restored old historic buildings all over Savannah. So the campus is everywhere in the historic district. Great setting for college. Students and their art everywhere.
Haunted ghost tour in a hearse. You must take one even if you don’t believe in them. It is just plain fun! We did a walking ghost tour. Didn’t see any though…ghosts that is.
Courthouse at night.
Colonial cemetary. Union soldiers camped here during the Civil War and being young and bored and boys….they changed the dates on some of the headstones so people were hundreds of years old, had children when they were children, and some died before they were born! Boys will be boys no matter what century! It’s fun to wander around in there before dark!
The sunsets are beautiful. And orange and blue.
Savannah is a beautiful city, especially in the spring. The azaleas were blooming, the weather was cool and comfortable, the people are hospitable and friendly. Put in on your bucket list.
The walk along the river is scenic with lots of places to eat and shop.
The city is laid out with lots of squares which makes walking around the city easy and beautiful. Savannah’s historic section is about a mile square with beautiful churches and homes on every corner…
John Wesley started the first Sunday School here and served as pastor of Christ Church before he went back to England.
My spring breakout buddy.
The food is great too. We managed to get in to Paula Deen 's restaurant without waiting all day!
That was a good cup of coffee and I really needed it!
I have lots more pictures on my camera. So more to come…
