We decided to take a bus tour of Savannah to get a feel for the city, learn a few facts & figure out what we really wanted to see.

Historic people, organizations founded, public greens/squares/parks…

statues, fences, live oak trees everywhere…

We would step off the bus, walk around in the “mist” which felt remarkably like “rain!”

Forsyth Park was two blocks from our condo.

Created in the 1840’s, this 30 acre park is the gathering place for dogs & their owners, frisbees & their throwers, walkers, bike-riders & anyone who wants to enjoy a refreshing walk through the live oaks & azaleas.

The Forsyth Fountain was spewing green water in anticipation of St. Patrick’s Day.

In the center, the Confederate Memorial which never touched Union soil on it’s way from Canada where it was created…

At the Park Avenue perimeter, the Spanish American War memorial…(there was a wonderful “health food” store across the street from this!)
