Savannah Showers

To say that the weather was challenging during our visit to Savannah would be a slight understatement. We were there for 7 days. It rained, sometimes very heavily, for 6 of those days. But since this is the place I’ve always wanted to visit, we weren’t going to let some rain get us down.

We decided after glancing at a map to take off and wander around the river front area of Savannah. You can get around to almost everything worth seeing just by walking. So while we gorged ourselves on delicious food, we managed to stay active and feel great the entire trip (a big in my book).

As we wandered around from square to square, we were able to learn a lot about the history of the city. Here are some of our favorite sights from our long walks… IMG_2684

We were able to take a stop in one particular square…

They filmed the Forrest Gump park bench scenes in this square. Unfortunately, they had to remove the bench because people kept trying to steal it. The Mr is a HUGE Forrest Gump fan, so we spent a good bit of time wandering around the square, comparing what we were seeing to what we remembered from the film and what we could pull up on our phones. How did people ever travel without smart phones?!IMG_2603
