Southern pictures

Tip of the Day: rest and relaxation is wonderful!

Since I'm on vacation this week, I thought I'd post a few pictures of Savannah for you to enjoy. If you are familiar with the Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil book or movie, some of these sites might be familiar.

The beautiful Forsyth Park, which is home to one of the most amazing fountains. It's not only pretty on it's own it also has a wonderful picturesque location under all the Spanish moss hanging from the trees.

Lafayette Square, just one of 22 squares in the downtown area! If you look closely in the background is the Andrew Low House, which is most famous for being the home of Juliette Gordon Low (founder of the Girl Scouts) and the Girl Scout First National Headquarters. I've heard cookies are still sold here and I'm definitely going to have to find out for sure!

The Mercer/Williams house, which was the site of the murder that was made famous in the Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil (super upbeat, I know. But we are in Savannah which is one of the most haunted places on the planet supposedly).

The picturesque and artistic city is definitely getting my creative juices flowing.

Book first?


Movie first?

I've never done either, but always considered it. Huge John Cusack fan, but his dramas never seem to do it for me, which is why I stayed away. lol

Sounds like a nice place to go and visit. I'd like to learn about it's background and why it's so haunted while I'm there, I think that's always the best way to learn about a place's past; being there and seeing it yourself.
