Spanish moss dangles from ancient live oaks and sways in the breeze. Elegant urns overflow with ivy; azaleas in every shade of pink compete for attention. And the sweet scent of pralines permeates the air. It’s springtime in Savannah.
Last weekend we celebrated our wedding anniversary (also St. Patrick’s Day) in Savannah, Georgia. We arrived a few days early before the famous festivities. We wanted to enjoy the calm before the storm, and do exactly what the city was designed for – walking.
Weaving our way past graceful mansions, through inviting squares with elegant fountains, gardens, and sculptures, we shared park benches with locals and tourists alike.
The prestigious Savannah College of Art and Design (SCAD) partners with the city to preserve architectural heritage, restoring buildings for use as college facilities – 67 to be exact!
The abundance of so many talented students adds a lively and stylish “youth vibe” to the entire area.
Shopping in the area runs the gamut from sophisticated to exotic (you know we liked this place) to downright quirky – the perfect combination as far as we’re concerned. We did fall in love with these tea towels!
And as promised, we did manage to have our Anniversary Pecan Praline.
How sweet it is!
Terri and James
