I love Savannah because it seems to blend together the historic with the scenic and does it with a sense of style and character that makes you feel at home. Founded in 1733 it was America's first planned city and the 23 parks or "Squares" as they are called provide a multitude of places for quiet reflection or fun people watching. It first came up on my radar in the Clint Eastwood movie "Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil" but you have probably seen parts of it in several movies from Forrest Gump to TV's Ghost Adventures.
John Wesley, the founder of the Methodist Movement, was appointed by Oglethorpe as the Minister of the Parish of Savannah. His stay was short lived and filled with controversy but he too figures prominently in one of the squares.
and minus the cars, the look of American Venice as you walk near the river's edge.
But, the trip could not end without giving tribute to "the old made new" in a discovery we made. If you look closely in the previous picture you see a truck parked near the street. A closer view shows that the owner has lovingly restored this symbol of a time long gone.
