I stopped for an all-too-brief visit in Savannah during my first year of fulltiming in 2002. I promised myself then that I’d make it back for a longer stay.
My promise was finally fulfilled in March, 2007, when I returned for a longer stay in that gorgeous town.
I could never get enough of the Historic Squares in the downtown district, especially since they were decked out in colorful azaleas that spring. It made having to work in a downtown law office more bearable when I could walk around them and the historic Old Colonial Cemetery right across the street during lunch breaks.
Skidaway Island State Park remained a favorite place to stay with the quiet, heavily treed sites and soothing nature trail.
I then discovered new Georgia treasures in Wormsloe Historic Site (which turned out to be my favorite) for the towering oaks lining the path to the ruins of that historic plantation.
Fort McAllister Historic State Park was totally fascinating from a historical standpoint, as well as a beautiful site to walk around in. The campground was a great temporary home for me this time, too.
Later as I was leaving Georgia again, the gorgeous cypress trees at George L. Smith State Park bid a fond farewell to this state this time around. I’m already looking forward to my next visit to this peach of a state!
