On St. Simons Island, Georgia there are tree spirits carved into live oaks trees. Early this morning we found this one beside Murphy’s Tavern on Mallery Street.
We love these new city “treasure hunts”, because frequently, they get us into parts of town where we wouldn’t normally go, or didn’t know about. As most travelers know, London is known for its local pubs. When living there, our favorite guidebook became “The Best 500 Pubs in London”, which inspired us to visit as many as possible. Saturday mornings found us pouring over the map to find the next one. It was a wonderful (and fun) way to see lots of new areas in a vast city.
And in downtown Greenville, South Carolina, their “Mice on Main” attraction features tiny mouse sculptures hidden all along Main Street. When our young nieces visited it was a great family outing to see how many of the little rodents we could spot.
