Yes, I was thinking about that song as we crossed the Chattahoochee River from Florida into Georgia two years ago. Our previous dip into Georgia was during the fall trip of 2008 when we visited Lookout Mountain overlooking Chattanooga, TN. (All my photos from there were digital and lost during a computer crash.)
This part of our 2014 SE trip wasn't going to include much more of Georgia, just an overnight outside Savannah and then a brief tour of that city.
This stretch of highway definitely gave me the feeling of being in the South.
Driving along the cobblestones of Bay Street next to the river looking up toward the historic business district.
Johnson Square was the first and is the largest of Savannah's original squares.
A pair of Mockingbirds at the base of one of the live oaks found throughout the square.
Bud at the memorial to Button Gwinnett, Georgia's Governor and signer of the Declaration of Independence. He was a candidate for a brigadier general position to lead the 1st Regiment in the Continental Army, but lost out to Lachlan McIntosh. He was killed in a duel with McIntosh in 1777.
It is also where South Carolina's secession from the Union was read in 1860. Of all the squares we could have happened upon, this one turned out to be the best.
