Savannah Sights

Girl Scouts of the world, here is your place of pilgrimage--the Juliette Low house, home of the organization's founder! (I was a brownie and junior myself!)

Savannah is filled with over 20 beautiful park squares. This one's Lafayette Square--my favorite because of the green, multitiered fountain in the middle (it's on the left in this pic).

Ahoy mateys! Here I am at the Pirate's House Restaurant, made famous by Robert Louis Stevenson's Treasure Island. Supposedly there are tunnels here that lead down to the Savannah River and were used for rum smuggling and shanghai-ing people.

I passed this beautiful home on E. Broughton St. Look at that ironwork!

I loved Savannah. Such a beautiful, historic place. It's also the only city that I know of that is an ART college town! It was great to see art students from the Savannah College of Art & Design (SCAD) everywhere with their portfolios and schoolwork. Fantastic.

hi elle, a many years ago we vacationed on Edisto Island and toured Charleston and Beaufort and I ate shrimp and grits and fell in love with them...tried to make them here but the quality of the shrimp this far inland just don't measure up...does the train run from Charlestown to Savannah or did you and your husband drive down?
