Beautiful Savannah

We love Savannah! What an incredible city. Our hotel was walking distance to all the parks, cemetery and River Street. Friday we walked all over the place. Sadly we were a bit early for the Azalea show. A few were in bloom but the bulk are probably going wild this weekend. Everything else was blooming luckily.

These first three shots are of the cemetery.

A beautiful fountain and yellow tulips.

The historic district had many iron fences. The homes often had very ornate iron on the windows as well. I'm going to keep my eyes open for some at antique shops and salvage stores but I think the iron will be expensive.

A private garden. I wish we would have gone on one of the horse drawn tours. It would have been the perfect way to see most of the historic area. We managed to cover lots of ground on foot anyway. Wear very good shoes when you go!

One of the many beautiful Churches.

This was my favorite fountain.

I thought this building looked amazing at night. A bit spooky.

Down on River Street. We loved this area. Delicious restaurants and plenty of places to get a cold drink or some salt water taffy made right there.

Historic homes and details of Savannah.

Being only five hours away from Savannah, we will be going back!

It looks really neat there. I'd love to visit parts of the south one day. I really enjoyed the pictures!

The least expensive way to have the iron is to build it yourself. My husband built us a beautiful gate (for our last house; I miss that gate!). He found a place in town that sold the pieces, and then we designed the gate with the pieces that we liked. He welded it all together, and then took it to a place in town to have it powder coated. It cost us about 1/4 of what a finished gate would cost.
