Savannah, Ga

Moving on we made a 3 day stop in Savannah, Ga. my favorite southern town. The weather was warm ,but it was a beautiful day. We are staying at Skidaway Island state park it is a very nice park with lots of live oak trees and spanish moss with nice shady sites. The campground is about 15 miles from downtown. We have been here sveral times also, so we just went into town one afternoon. We visited the Bonaventure cemetary and took a few pics of some of the headstone. The most facinating one is the stone figure of a little girl named Gracie, she died at 6 of yellow fever. The statue was designed by a guy who had a photo of her in her Easter dress and it is life size. Legend has it she roams the cemetary at times and has been seen by several people on different occasions. The birdgirl statue which is on the cover of the book "Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil" is no longer in the cemetary, but it is on display at the Telfair museum in town because people were taking pieces for souviners.
