This weekend Keith and I held our second annual Spring get-together in Savannah, Georgia. (Last year, we visited Graceland.) Founded in 1733, Savannah has a rich history and a marvelously restored historic district to accompany it. There are gorgeous mansions, Southern oaks dripping with Spanish moss, monuments, parks, and references to such movies as Gone with the Wind, Forrest Gump, and Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil.
But the truth is we didn't choose Savannah to steep ourselves in its rich background. Originally we picked it because it was warm, sunny, easy to get to, and had a reputation for good food. Here we are in Forsythe Park amid the flowering shrubs and alabaster fountains, and we're happy as clams.
Tomorrow it's back to work, but we're already talking about next year's excursion. So if any of you have suggestions of places that meet our criteria,we'd love to hear from you.
