A Holiday in Savannah

About a week before Christmas we visited lovely Savannah.

The bridge into Savannah:

A beautiful blue-sky day!

This tree is just amazing!!

Savannah has some amazing historic churches and temples

and they really are not leaning like the Tower of Pisa...I just had my camera crooked! LOL

Beautiful big old live oaks drizzled with spanish moss:

The old white cast iron fountain in Forsyth Park. It was put here in 1858.

We came upon a wedding:

A pretty place to get married!

the petals from the ceremony:

Our girls enjoyed their scenic ride to Savannah....but were also so glad to get out and explore the paths in the park! And all the sights! And the SMELLS!!

Tammie and I enjoying walking around the pretty fountain:

The lovely park surrounding the fountain is 30 acres big. 

The fountain all decorated for the holidays:

Savannah is set on 24 little "parks" or squares. The city is full of lovely historical homes and sights. I sure enjoyed a peek at all the beautiful old homes.

the back of a townhouse:
Some kind of ivy or greenery growing all over this house!

Sweet little kitty came galloping up and meowing at me......I think I am just a cat magnet! LOL Doesn't he have a royal lion-like face?

Love this shade of blue for a house!

My favorite street in Savannah:

I loved this door!!

Love all the ornamental iron work on the banisters and posts, it's amazing!

Check out the tenacious greenery growing right out of the concrete cracks around this doorway!

Apartments even in the very top of tall buildings. Many stairs to climb!

Aren't these windows beautiful?

So much amazing architecture...enough to keep me busy for a long time. The city seems to be very much like our Charleston. 
Love this old red brick and the arches!
and the built in breezy balconies! Not sure if this is a business building, apartments,  or condos.

Around the city, lights are coming on.

People settling in for the winter night....perhaps wrapping presents, watching t/v, reading a good long book they've been eager to get to.
(above) the glow in a big bay window looks so homey doesn't it?
Loved our time in Savannah! Hope to return!
