In Savannah, Old Friends Are Forever Young

Telfair Academy is a neoclassical Regency mansion turned museum- built in 1818 in downtown historic Savannah. First home to the son of an American War patriot and later a public building. You may recognize the fellows out front from school studies of the ancients. I know I did.

Last week, we spent a lot of time walking round the city re-visiting its beautiful sights. Savannah is such a beautiful combination of old standards- elegant hand wrought materials and lush green you never get tired of.  I’ve put together some eye candy to take away the chill from a snowy couple days in the northeast. There is nothing quite so wonderful as Savannah in early Spring before the summer hits.

Savannah gates of black iron abound in the historic district. Who can resist stopping and staring- there’s often water in there somewhere!

Forsyth Park, Savannah’s historic green place, is over 30 miles in size, the fountain its crown jewel.

A day trip to Wormsloe -outside of Savannah, didn’t disappoint. Informally known as the Wormsloe Foundation you can feel its history while strolling through the woods – this was one of the first plantations built by Georgia founding fathers. The live oaks and Spanish moss stretch over a mile, arching across the drive creating a legendary arbor for the property entrance.Savannah
