No matter how many times I make my way to Savannah, I always discover something beautiful and new. Something I haven’t seen before or encountered in the past. Since I moved to Florida five years ago, I try to make the three-hour drive north once a year.
This fall I had an opportunity for an evening away with a friend from high school and her cousin. The best part of the whole trip is that she is a photographer as well so we wandered aimlessly around the city, with the camera’s out and ready to make sure the other doesn’t walk into traffic.
(Only kind of kidding.)
Today, a month and a half later I started a whole new batch of editing on some photos I took while we were in Savannah. My favorite thing about Savannah is all the different squares. There are 18 squares named after various important figures in Savannah history. If you are a history buff, you are in luck if you visit the city.
One of my 2019 goals is to publish a tabletop travel book based on the Savannah Historic District.
In various places around the city, you can find the original cobblestone streets. Especially in the Riverfront area. Much of the rich history comes from that area. The cobblestone laid in the street comes from all over the world. From Spain to France, much of the Rock was imported with early settlers.
Something else you may not know about the River Street area… it is one of the most haunted locations in the city.
Ever gotten an eerie feeling on River Street? I certainly had a couple days full of weird feelings and experiences when I was in the city. In fact, I’ve witnessed at least one ghostly experience on every trip I’ve taken to Savannah. Maybe it’s the empath in me? Or maybe they just know it’s easier to contact me because the vail is thin in my world.
Keep an eye peeled this week for my Savannah Photography Series on Instagram!
