2011 Sisters Trip — Part Three — Savannah, GA

Terri and I are pictured above in front of the fountain at Forsyth Park.

The first thing Terri and I did on Monday morning was to make for one of Savannah’s Squares in the historic district. Our hotel was located within walking distance of Johnson Square.

After grabbing breakfast at a wonderful cafe in the historic district, we headed to the Savannah History Museum where we purchased tickets for the trolley tour.

Again we were able to get on and off at will, which allowed us to cover a lot more territory than we would have been able to by foot or by car. Can’t recommend these tours enough! The only thing we wanted to do but simply couldn’t find time for was to eat at Paula Dean’s The Lady and Sons restaurant. Will be sure to plan for it on our next trip!

I didn’t know much about Savannah’s squares until I arrived and saw how beautiful they are and how they make the historic district stand out from other cities’. Since Terri has a masters degree in landscape design, this was the highlight of the trip for her and she took literally hundreds of photographs. I’m sharing only a very few. I am kindly not including the many, many photos she took of our hotel suite 😉

The city is enchanting. For a long time I’ve had a story idea and have been looking for the perfect location for the story. Savannah is IT. Don’t know when I’ll have time to work on this new story, but since visiting Savannah, bits and pieces of the story, the theme, the characters have all fallen into place. Just thinking about it makes me hungry to write 🙂

Information about Savannah’s historic district squares.

I can’t talk about Savannah and books without mentioning Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil by John Berendt. Pictured below is a photo of the Mercer Williams House featured in the book.

After morning and lunch in Savannah, we headed to Orlando (about 6 hours away) for dinner with my son, then made it to my home on the west coast of Florida at around 1:00 AM.
