A walking tour of Savannah

On our way down to Florida we stopped for a morning in Savannah. We started our walking tour at Forsyth Park.
Beautiful fountains everywhere.

It seemed like every square has a monument.

Beautiful old homes.

In my landscape design course we learned how the city of Savannah was designed in a grid pattern, like many other planned cities. But, Savannah left open spaces in the grids. That's what makes it so beautiful.
I just love the spanish moss dripping from the live oaks.

We walked down to the Savannah River front.

And stopped at this lovely spot across from the Cathedral of St. John for a chai.

haha - I love that last picture. It's a perfect place - sitting in Savannah with a chai and a golden retriever. I'm so glad we got to do that. I'm happy you're having fun in Florida.

Aw I love Savannah! I also love the picture of Mom and Emily at the end. :)

Great pictures! I'm glad you two got to spend more time there this time. It sounds like a fun trip.
