Searching for Midnight in the Garden Squares of Savannah

The vacation stretch goal had been to get up and out of the Thunderbird Inn and see the squares of Savannah in the early morning fog. Perhaps it was the haze of too many Krispy Kreme donuts but we were out the door and on to the walking adventure a bit after sunrise. It was relatively cool and there were no other tourists when we got to Telfair Square. Oops, I guess we were tourists.

The goal was to walk the calm streets of Savannah from square to square to get to the Mercer/Williams home on Monterey Square made famous in Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil.

Although the house was elegant and grand, it seemed small and under-impressive compared to the large number of elegant, large homes on the other town squares an around the historic district. There is so much beautiful architecture in Savannah.

Forsyth Park, the next park south of the Monterey Square, offered a park bench in the cool shade of a Spanish moss covered live oak to observe the fountain and listen to the soothing music drifting past provided by the dueling buskers, a violin and a trumpet, mostly playing alternately.
