We took a trolley tour for the first time in all the years we have gone to Savannah. I would highly recommend it as you can see a lot of things, and learn a lot of this beautiful city. Even though the morning was very chilly (the afternoon was nice though) we persuaded our driver to open the flaps on the trolley so we could take better pictures and see things clearer.
In Savannah there are 24 parks. Three of them were used for something else other than a park, but originally there were 24. Now from the river front to Forsyth Park is one mile, and you can easily walk it. Here are a few of the parks.
Some homes that were seen from the trolley tour
Now this is very interesting. This park is across from a church, and in this park is this small fountain for animals to get a drink from. Once a year in May all animals, dogs, cats, monkeys, goats, etc., etc., gather here to be blessed! Quite an interesting tradition.
I love how this park scene turned out with the red ribbon around the lamp posts. We just missed Savannah being fully decked out by a week. I'm sure it is beautiful.
One of the smaller houses. I forgot who had lived there, but I believe this place recently sold in the hundreds of thousands!
These bridges connect to the riverfront buildings.
Part of the river front scene. There are a ton of shops through here, and that bridge you see in the background will take you to Hilton Head Island and also Charleston, S.C. which is Savannah's sister city.
This statue was placed here where I believe a lighthouse once stood. This woman would stand here and wave to the passing ships, and she did it until the day she died.
Isn't the iron work fabulous in this picture?
On this house which is located on Bull Street and Gordan, all of the detail work around the windows and doors is made from cast iron. It has turned a lovely color.
I have a few more pictures from this lovely city to post, all of the architect details that abound here, wrought iron, fountains, etc.. Like I said it really is a beautiful city.
