Old Savannah





The waterfront area along the Savannah River in Savannah Georgia is the original and oldest part of the city.  

It's a beautiful stop while driving down I-95.  
It's just a short jaunt off the interstate and there is much to see!


 
I particularly noticed the old iron balconies high above the colorful flags and blue and white awning.


It is the old brick though that really caught my attention.  If only it could talk!



The hanging moss is a sign you are definitely in Savannah! 
 I wondered though, why the hole in the wall? 
 

Again, the balconies that have such a wonderful view of the river. 


 The pink brick was everywhere, much easier to walk on than the cobblestone. 


 The shadows under a group of palms make a pretty picture


The road was actually tilted downwards towards the river.


These pink acrylic chairs looked very unusual and very comfortable


There were monuments everywhere

This particular one honored a girl who waved a cloth and welcomed the ships from her home on Elba Island.  She was waving her greeting to every ship from 1887-1931

Now she waves from the waterfront park.  

My next trip through I plan to stay longer!

Intriguing streetscape images. And I do love those little ironwork balconies.

I love the balconies, sidewalk cafes and the mossy trees

The balconies are one of many things my hubby and I liked about New Orleans. We "day-dreamed" about living there. What an interesting story about the girl/woman waving to ships! I like the textures you captured while photographing the shadows. Indeed this is a pretty, charming city.

Thanks for visiting Buttercup's. Hope you will stop by often. Savannah is one of my favorite places. Was back in November for my fifth visit and would be happy to make five more.

Hi Jeannie Marie,

We have Spanish moss hanging from trees in Tampa. I really do not appreciate it. (It takes all kinds!)

Love the blues. Thanks for sharing.

There are several types of crabs and several ways to prepare them. Maryland blue crab cooked with Old Bay Seasoning is the best!

Happy Blue Monday!

Happy blue Monday.

We are having a heat wave for about four more days.

I am inside.
