Greetings from Savannah

Savannah, Georgia will mostly be remembered for its 95 degree heat and humidity. However, we had a wonderful historic Savannah experience.

Our morning started at John Wesley’s statue. According to the historical marker, John Wesley was an Anglican minister who served as the religious leader of the Georgia colony. He wanted to embrace both Native Americans and colonists.  The United Methodist Church declared this statue of their founder’s American ministry, a National Historic Landmark in 1976.

How did the orange cone get on John’s head?

Next, we headed to City Market for brunch at Belford’s. We both enjoyed an applewood bacon and cheese omelet, fruit, and grits.

Schu decided it was time for another “Where I Read This Summer” photo opportunity.

Donna decided to hop on board…

The next stop on our Savannah walking tour brought us to The Haitian Monument. It honors the Chasseurs Volontaires de Saint-Domingue, who fought for American Independence during the Siege of Savannah in 1779.

It felt like a walk back through time as we strolled down River Street with its cobblestone streets, aging facades, and  the Savannah River guiding us to the statue of the Waving Girl.
