Jo’s Monday Walk: Savannah, Georgia

It’s summer and we must have a ย see of Savannah and all it has to offer! What is it about Savannah? Is it the Savannah River that draws our attention?

Savannah Riverfront

Or the old warehouses to explore along the waterfront?

Or the riverboats and cobblestoned streets?

I think it is the Spanish moss hanging from the old oak trees!

And the beautifully shaded and manicured parks………

One after another…….just keep walking……..

Water is everywhere so you can think you are cool in the heat and humidity………… and there are gardens spilling over into the water……

Did I mention the antebellum architecture? There are many shades of pink to be found here! My favorite color for a cottage! The historic Savannah starts here!

    What a fabulous post! The whole mood ensnared me and I wanted to be beneath those trees, or better yet, beside a fountain. Your photos are wonderful, especially the watery shots. It’s a place I’ve only seen in dreams. I feel a little bit closer now. Thank you very much. ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚

    What a wonderful wander – I thoroughly enjoyed it. I may be gone for a while as I’m sitting right by a fountain and putting my feet up!

    Thank you for sharing this lovely walk – I felt I was with you and could just imagine the welcoming cool of the shade and hear the water of the fountain! Ahh, how I’d love to see a riverboat one day, reminiscent of a bygone era and finally a name to the strands hanging from the trees which I saw in Florida – Spanish Moss! Terrific post and gorgeous photos! ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ˜€

    1. Annika, Spanish-moss is an flowering plant which absorbs nutrients and water through its leaves from the air and rainfall.
      One southern story of the origin on Spanish moss is called “The Meanest Man Who Ever Lived”. The man’s white hair grew very long and got caught on trees! Oh My!

    1. It is still so hot and humid, even in the shade during the summer in the South. To sit out on the porch get up by 5 am! The fountains make you feel you should be cool! Ha Ha! Thanks for stopping by!

    Beautiful. We visited Savannah once. It might look shady but I remember it being hot, hot, hot!

    1. Oh Anabel, yep it is HOT and HUMID where I live too, but Savannah really gets to everyone! It is quite like New Orleans in the summer I think. I would need a reprieve from it! That is why we travel in the summer to cooler places! Thanks for stopping by! Have a good week!
