This is the 100th blog entry I’ve done, and when I began in this format 2 years ago, it was about our trip to Florida that year. Here we are now and just on our way home, so kind of appropriate that this week’s entry is the final one for this year’s trip.
On the way back this time, we stopped in Savannah, Georgia. Norma and I both love Georgia’s first city, because it has things we both like – architecture, flowers and gardens for her, history and genealogy for me. And, of course, lots to photograph. This week’s image is of an oak-lined drive, lovely with the Spanish moss and the trees so large they’re almost connecting. The site is at Wormsloe, the historic first British settlement area for the new colony of Georgia. The site has a replica colonial area, but also the real remains of the first home, built in the early 1730’s, and the paths and forest are magical.
Most folks take tours of Savannah, and the Old Savannah ones are excellent, but that just gives you an overview. To get to really know the city, you need to walk around and have a good look. Wormsloe is very worthwhile, but so are many of the homes, like the Davenport House, the first home saved by the Historical Savannah group, which has now saved many such properties.
Savannah is a great city to spend some time in, and a wonderful spot to take in on the way back to the much cooler climate of Nova Scotia!
