Savannah


I meant to put up this post much sooner, but I've been suffering from a miserable cold. Last Monday, Josh and I explored Savannah, Georgia. It was a beautiful day. We began our exploration by walking through several of the wooded squares downtown.

We came upon Christ Church, one of two churches in Savannah where the Rev. John Wesley preached. Cool!


One thing in particular I was in search of was the square where they filmed Forrest Gump sitting on the bench discussing the similarity between life and a box of chocolates. The actual bench is now in the Smithsonian, but we found a similar bench in Chippewa Square, where the movie was filmed. (Me doing my best Forrest Gump impersonation.)


Walking along Savannah streets we noticed this cat. When we passed by again, we noticed a postcard in the shop window, which contained an image of the cat along with the words, "Frankie says hi!" We went inside, bought a couple of postcards and talked with the shop owner. Evidently, Frankie used to mingle with the tourists in the square. Unfortunately, she was hit by a car, and $2,700 later, her owner keeps her tied to a water jug. She didn't seem worse for the wear.
