Hey y’all. I was finally able to sit down at the computer and download my photos from our second day in Savannah. What an awesome place! If you’ve never been, you should go. If you’ve been there you know exactly how spectacular it is. A girl could easily spend a ton of money there too. There are loads of shops and antique stores – and they’ve got just about everything you could ever dream of when it comes to trinkets and souvenirs.
As my sisters-in-law and their husbands had headed home on Sunday, Sam and I were able to take our time and mosey around the historic district. We walked, and walked, and walked, and then took another horse drawn carriage tour, and then we walked about some more. The weather was so nice though, and everything is laid out in such and orderly fashion the walking didn’t seem too difficult – plus Savannah’s historic district is flat – unlike Scotland where everything is uphill.
The original settlement of Savannah was laid out around 21 town squares that cover about a 5 or 10 mile grid. We only had time to visit about half of them on foot, and I certainly would like to get back to see the rest of them sometime. Each square is dedicated to a person or persons who helped to shape the Savannah we have now. Most of the squares are also rife with ghost stories and legends of ghost siting. I didn’t see any ghosts while I was there, but I can see how easily the dark and misty nights could feed those legends. Truly, Savannah is on my top five favorite places to vacation – I think you’d love it too.
