Savannah Again

Savannah is a good place to stay on the first night northbound or the second night southbound.


Ballastone Inn had a nice fall display.


Johnny Mercer was one of Savannah's favorite sons.  He was a successful and prolific songwriter ("Moon River"), winner of four Oscars for best song, and a co-founder of Capitol Records.
Susie Chisholm is the sculptor.


The Savannah Cotton Exchange was completed in 1887 when the city ranked first on the Atlantic coast as a cotton port and second in the world.  Today the building serves
as the headquarters of the Savannah Chamber of Commerce.


The Savannah riverfront is far below the city, accessible by some steep old steps.


And, yesterday was Trellis' (blue) birthday, so Meghan (green) and Christina (ivory) took her 
out to dinner at The Pink House, one of Savannah's best known restaurants.
Trellis and Meghan teach art at a Savannah high school.  Christina is a dancer.

I really love the first shot with the Halloween decoration. It's elegant yet effective.

Enjoy your winter, Jack! Savannah is on the short list for a quick trip in the not so distant future. One of Dave's daughters attends SCAD (Savannah College of Art and Design). I hear it's a great city.

Another beautiful set of photos. I hope you're careful if you use those steps. We'd hate to hear you broke a leg coming down stairs made of pumpkins!

Very nice miniature travelogue. The set has a nice sense of place.

This is a fun city to visit although a few years ago I thought that parts of it looked a bit shabby. Photo of the fall display is beautifuul. . a colorful display of pumpkins.
