Savannah, Georgia

On Monday, April 18, we arrived at Savannah and met up with Bernita and Ron Poutney who were staying at Bernita's son's place. He has a large lawn that both rigs could fit on. We are very fortunate to have just good friends.
Tuesday, the fourof us went into Savannah. We parked at the visitor's center and then Ron lead
us on a walking tour. We walked through the downtown area, to
River street and back to the tourist area. Savannah has lots of parks/squares surrounded by historic buildings.

British General James Oglethorpe founded the city in 1733 and laid out the plan for eight blocks and a square in the middle. There are 22 squares in the historic district.

After our walking tour and a nice lunch at the Pirates Cove we took the trolley tour and saw even more beautiful old buildings and squares.

The Khoe House has been a boarding house and a funeral parlor. Now it is an inn.

The Mercer-Williams house caught my attention since I had just read the book, Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil. This is the home where the alleged murder occurred.

Here is Ron and Bernita on the trolley.
